Work has recently started at Granny’s Bay, as part of the £22 million coastal protection project along the Fylde coast, VolkerStevin reports. 

VBA, a joint venture between VolkerStevin, Boskalis Westminster and Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, has been awarded an extension to the contract to redevelop Granny’s Bay.

On completion, this work will provide new coastal defenses and upgraded promenades at Fairhaven, Church Scar and Granny’s Bay.

Commenting the latest news, Councillor Roger Small, Chair of the Operational Management Committee for Fylde Council, said: “This is the final piece of the jigsaw and will mean that we have a wonderful new foreshore, pleasing to look at and use as a recreational resource, as well as providing shoreline protection.”

The Sea Defense Project is replacing the sea defense walls, as the existing coastal defenses are time expired and have been failing.

According to VolkerStevin, the current concrete coast defenses were built in the 1890s and have been undergoing emergency repairs every year to prevent a major breach.
