The Canterbury City Council announced yesterday that their ongoing sea defense project to help protect Herne Bay from flooding is nearing completion.

The £2.8 million scheme, which started back in September 2018, has seen 11 new timber groynes successfully installed to the west of the pier at Lane End, 2,000 tonnes of granite rock delivered and placed around the roundall near the King’s Hall plus general repairs to the seawall, promenade and handrail refurbishments.

The remainder of the work is now concentrated on the King’s Hall frontage where 13 more timber groynes are being installed. The next stage of work involves attaching the timber planking to the piles, ahead of the final placing of the beach.

Chairman of the council’s Community Committee, Cllr Neil Baker, said: “The completion of the groynes along Lane End and the placement of the rock around the roundall mark significant steps forward in what is a really important project for Herne Bay.”

“These works will play a key role in protecting the town for years to come and again highlight the quality work of our engineering team in protecting the district’s coastline.”

In addition to the initial Environment Agency funding, the council has also managed to secure further funding to repair the groynes to the east of the Herne Bay Sailing Club.

All work should be complete by March 2019.
