SOPAC Members Tour Bournemouth Beach Scheme

SOPAC (Standing Conference on Problems Associated with the Coastline) members recently paid a visit to the Bournemouth Beach Management scheme.

SCOPAC – an influential network of local authorities and other key organisations – was established in 1986 with the role to assist members in developing a coordinated and sustainable approach to coastal risk management by commissioning research and sharing information.

Bournemouth Borough Council was the organizer of this field visit, where they presented the latest developments on the scheme and the recent landslide to the SCOPAC members.

The program of works for the Bournemouth scheme runs from 2015 to 2032 and will:

  • replace Bournemouth’s existing 53 groynes;
  • construct an additional three new groynes;
  • replace the groyne at Hengistbury Head known as the ‘Long Groyne’;
  • schedule beach replenishment to take place once every five years.

The cost of phase one (2015-2020) is £17.5 million approximately. The total cost of the entire project (phases 1 – 3) is £50 million approximately, with the majority funded by the Environment Agency and a small proportion by the Council.
