Initial Work on Clacton and Holland Scheme Due to Get Underway

Initial work is due to get underway on a new £5 million scheme to stabilize cliffs along the coastline at Clacton and Holland-on-Sea.

Mott MacDonald has been appointed to carry out ground investigation and design works for the project.

It will follow on from the highly successful coastal protection scheme completed by Tendring District Council (TDC) and its partners last October which created 23 new beaches and rock groynes along a 5km stretch of the coastline.

The ground investigation works will take place over the coming months on cliffs east of Clacton Pier.

Recent instabilities and weather events have led to some of the slopes becoming over steep. They will require regrading in places, drainage being replaced and retaining structures being constructed at the toes of the slope.

TDC’s Cabinet agreed to proceed with the stabilization scheme last December and more than £2 million of the money has come from the previous scheme being completed under budget.
