All Set for Whitley Bay Coastal Protection Scheme

North Tyneside Council has just announced that works are underway to prepare for a scheme to give a stretch of the seafront at Whitley Bay a new lease of life.

The council’s project to strengthen and safeguard sea defenses will see vital refurbishment works carried out at Central Lower Promenade.

The scheme, which has saved more than £1m of public money and has received strong public backing, involves building a new rear wall and strengthening the existing sea wall on the lower promenade, as well as improvements to the public realm.

Planning permission was granted last month and enabling works are now underway ahead of the main construction scheme starting in the coming weeks, the council said.

The site compound has been set up ready to provide a base for workers and the equipment and machinery needed to do the job.

The project is being funded jointly by the council and partners Northumbrian Water and the Environment Agency and will be carried out in partnership with Hartlepool Borough Council.
