North Norfolk Council to Discuss Bacton and Walcott Projects

A proposal to bolster sea defenses at Bacton Gas Terminal, Bacton and Walcott villages will be discussed by North Norfolk District Council’s Cabinet on July 3.

The proposed scheme would involve ‘sandscaping’ the shoreline, in front of the terminal and down the coast; effectively using high volumes of sand to protect the coast.

The volume of sand is approximately equal to 200 Carrow Road football pitches covered 1 meter deep in sand, or 1.5 million cubic meters. This would be the first time a project of this scale has been delivered in the UK, the council said in its release.

It is estimated that the total cost of the scheme will be £17 million to £19 million pounds, which includes £4.8m to fund the village element of the scheme.

The scheme will require that an Environmental Impact Assessment be completed and establish that there will be no negative impacts economically, socially or environmentally.
