To help keep the beach in place and to protect the sea wall, two new rock groynes will be constructed along the Carlisle Parade frontage.

Added to this, beach will be moved from the harbour arm area and a new set of timber access steps to the beach will be installed.

Funded by the Environment Agency’s Flood Defence Grant in Aid and Hastings Borough Council 5,000 tonnes of Larvik granite rocks from Norway will be delivered by sea to complete the construction.

Work is expected to take 10 weeks.
