Residents turned out in force for sea defence exhibition
5:00pm Monday 4th November 2013 in News
More than 250 people visited an exhibition on a major £36 million sea defence scheme for Clacton and Holland on sea’s coastline.
Final details of the project were on show with experts on hadn to answer any questions.
Barry and Carol Cooper from Cliff Road, Holland on sea said: “We are desperate to see this happen, not only to protect our home but to help regenerate the area.
“It is brilliant and the sooner it happens the better.”
The work involves 23 fish tail groynes around 90metres long, and will include sand and shingle mix to recharge the whole frontage.
Nick Turner, TDC’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Coast Protection, said that he was delighted with people’s reaction.
“Those turning out to the exhibition were genuinely relieved that we have reached the point where we have achieved critical mass,” he said.
