We are now in the process of designing and delivering the Mundesley Coastal Management scheme.
The scheme seeks to reduce the risk of erosion of the vulnerable cliffs along almost 2km of the Mundesley coastline.
The Mundesley Coastal Management Scheme seeks to:
- Deliver the Shoreline Management Plan policy for Mundesley over the next 50 years.
- Stop cliff erosion where possible and continue to slow the rate of losses elsewhere.
- Manage and maintain the beach.
The coastal management works will be designed mainly following the preferred option from the Mundesley Coastal Management Outline Business Case (OBC) from 2018. It will also incorporate other work elements detailed in the scope following a recent workshop and discussions with NNDC.
The works will involve repairs to:
- 11 groynes
- navigation beacons
It will also include:
- installation of Armourflex for slope protection
- re-levelling and re-surfacing areas of the east promenade
- access improvement works
- rock protection
The designers for the scheme, Mott MacDonald, were selected through a tender process. Mott MacDonald will produce the final design and documents we require for planning and consents. The scheme will be delivered by Coastal Partnership East on behalf of NNDC.
We expect construction works to begin in 2023, subject to the relevant consent and funding.
The Mundesley scheme will incorporate improved access at the east promenade as part of repairs to existing defences, a rock revetment to protect water infrastructure and the lifeboat station and rock armour to the west to aid existing structures in minimising coastal erosion.
Local liaison group meetings
We have organised several local liaison group meetings with local stakeholders about the upcoming scheme.
