Hill Head New Seawall Approved

Fareham Borough Council has secured the long term future of the sea defenses at Hill Head by approving the construction of a new half-a-million pound seawall at a meeting of the Council’s Executive held April 4.

According to the council, the replacement seawall will reduce the risk of flooding, protect beach huts and keep the promenade open all year round. It will also reduce the potential for coastal erosion on the cliffs behind the beach huts.

The council’s coastal engineers at the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP) will oversee the project. The co-ordinated approach to coastal defense and beach maintenance in Hill Head has received considerable support from local residents.

Executive Member for Planning and Development at Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Keith Evans said that building the seawall will allow residents, visitors and beach hut owners to safely carry on enjoying the promenade for years to come.

A planning application for the replacement seawall has been submitted and if the plans are approved the works will start in early July.
