Bacton to Walcott coastal management scheme logo

The beaches in front of Bacton Gas Terminal and the villages of Bacton and Walcott will be transformed during summer 2019 as a result of the Sandscaping scheme.

A UK-first multi-partner project, the scheme will see approximately 1.8 million cubic metres of sand placed and engineered on these beaches.

The height and width of the beaches will be significantly increased and access to beaches improved.

Find out more about the project in our June 2019 update.

The following video outlines the Bacton to Walcott Coastal Management Scheme which is designed to protect Bacton Gas Terminal and nearby villages of Bacton and Walcott by raising beach levels. 

The following storymap gives more detail about the scheme. View in full screen.

The Bacton to Walcott planning application page contains information concerning the decision making process and those who were consulted during the planning stages of this project.
