Hill Head Project Update

Phase 1 of the Hill Head Coastal Protection Project is well underway with the groynes being rebuilt and new shingle being laid.

As a part of the Phase 1 of the Hill Head project, re-nourishment of historically low beach levels will take place, protecting the promenade from further exposure to wave damage.

Extensive maintenance on the 13 Fareham Borough Council (FBC) owned groynes will improve beach material retention and help protect the seawalls.

The beach material that is used for the Phase 1 is being dredged from the Solent and then bought ashore in Portsmouth for processing and transportation.

Phase 1 construction works started on the 30th August and are set for completion by 30th September 2016.

Works on the Phase 2, which subject to obtaining consents and funding, are due to start in Summer 2017.
