North Norfolk District Council yesterday presented the latest video demonstrating the work undertaken under the ‘Bacton to Walcott Coastal Management Sandcaping Scheme’.

The beaches in front of Bacton Gas Terminal and the villages of Bacton and Walcott have been transformed over the last month as a result of the Sandscaping scheme.

The project was executed by Van Oord and Royal Haskoning DHV, working as part of Team Van Oord.

During the works, approximately 1.8 million cubic meters of sand was dredged and placed onto the Bacton to Walcott beaches.

According to the council, the UK’s first ever sandscaping coastal flood scheme costed around £19 million.
