Beach Nourishment

After successfully securing funding from the Environment Agency, Havant Borough Council will be carrying out the next beach recycling campaign along the Eastoke frontage to reduce the risk of coastal flooding and erosion to properties and infrastructure.

Beach recycling is the movement of material from areas of beach build up to areas of erosion. This helps to restore beach levels and increase the standard of protection against flooding at Eastoke, Hayling Island. This beach recycling campaign will reinstate the beach crest ahead of the winter season.

The site of the works is the southern Eastoke frontage at Hayling Island, between Inn on the Beach and the rock structure at Eastoke Point.

The contractor, Ovenden Earthmoving Co Ltd will commence works on Monday 25th September 2023. The September campaign is expected to last for approximately three weeks.
