Beach Replenishment Works at Hayling Island in Full Swing
Mackley is currently carrying out a program of beach replenishment works on Hayling Island in Hampshire, as part of a wider scheme to protect the area from flooding.
The South Hayling Beach Management Plan provides flood risk management to protect approximately 1,500 homes in the south of Hayling Island.
Mackley has been contracted by the East Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP) and Havant Borough Council to recharge the beach at Eastoke – which involves the excavation of more than 20,000T of shingle.
During the summer of 2017, the ESCP obtained new permissions which have enabled them to extend the boundaries of its flood prevention work area.
The new permissions also impose restrictions on how work can be carried out in the area due to the environmentally sensitive nature of the site, including vegetated shingle and high tide roost sites for birds.
