Site visit - Bacton to Walcott Coastal Management Scheme: Sandscaping, Bacton

About this event

This is a scheme that provides a very high level of protection against erosion of the cliffs fronting the Bacton Gas Terminals. It also provides a very substantial level of protection against the action of the sea for the communities of Bacton and Walcott.

A UK-first multi-partner project, the scheme, often described as Sandscaping and drawing on the Dutch Zandmotor experience, will see approximately 1.8 million cubic metres of sand placed on the beaches fronting the Gas Terminals, Bacton and Walcott. The height and width of the beaches will be significantly increased and access to beaches improved. Further details can be seen on North Norfolk District Council’s web site - https://www.north-norfolk.gov.uk/sandscaping.
