The colour history shows how a beach enjoyed by generations of families began to disappear suddenly after the completion of the Outer Harbour. Also includes is a timeline and a brief engineering explanation.
The two–year study of why the beach is disappearing has been headed up by Dr. Phil Barber, established specialist in hydronomics, sediment transport and shoreline management. His conclusions are contained in this Executive Summary.
With erosion and sand slides during last month’s bad weather, the cliff is now being secured by tonnes of rocks. A four week project is underway in which a safe passage to the beach and along the cliff top can hopefully be secured.
