Scratby Sea Defence Project
Subsea Protection Systems partnered with Mackinnon and Great Yarmouth Borough Council began work late 2015 on the £600,000 Norfolk coastal defence scheme, which aims to delay the rate of erosion, giving the community more time to adapt to coastal changes.
An 900m long revetment of stone and crushed concrete-filled gabions will run infront of the cliff face at Scratby beach. They should help protect local residential homes for over a 35-year period, and a further 100 more over a 100-year period.
Local MP Brandon Lewis, and Liz Truss, Enviromental secretary backed the scheme at Scratby, and promised more government money to shore up the local coastlines and improve flood defences in Norfolk. See the full video report on our Youtube page
