£10,000 scheme launched to protect Holland-on-sea cliffs from erosion
12:54pm Tuesday 18th September 2012 in News
WORKERS have started a £10,000 scheme to reinforce a section of crumbling cliffs in Holland.
A layer of special bonded gravel will be applied to the cliff to slow down erosion.
Work is already underway at the site opposite Queensway, and should be completed next week.
The scheme will cost £10,000, which will come from Tendring Council ’s seafront maintenance budget.
Tendring Council’s technical boss Pam Sambridge said: “The company carried out similar work at West End Lane, Dovercourt and it has proved very successful.
“This bonded gravel is designed to hold the cliff together and it will also provide some support and protection for a small pumping station at this site.
“The initiative is all part of our on-going annual maintenance work along our coastline.”
The promenade will still be open to pedestrians while work is carried out.
