In our last newsletter, we raised the issue of erosion affecting the eastern end of the park. At that point, we were waiting on Natural England to give permission for stones to be used to combat the erosion. This has now been given and the Council plans to put roughly 120 large stones along the beach at the eastern end of the park.

We are obviously very happy with this outcome and will monitor to see how these measures work and whether they are enough to combat the erosion.

On a related note, we are very concerned that recent high tides have been reaching up to the base of the footbridge over the railway. This has lead to corrosion which, if unchecked, will cause substantial and expensive damage to the bridge.

We have been in contact with the council to get this dealt with asap – watch this space for updates!
