Work to build the new sea defences as part of the Medmerry coastal realignment Scheme started 31 October. The Environment Agency are nearing completion of their site compound near Ham, the base from which they will do most of the work.
Towards the end of this month the first layer of the new sea defences wil be built at the Bunn Leisure and Sussex Beach Holiday Village ends of the scheme. In December and January the rock which will used to build the retaining walls at the seaward ends of the new defences will be delivered from the sea by barge.
