Walton on the Naze Coastal Management
Transcript of Walton on the Naze Coastal Management
The Naze Protection Society says: 'This design can absorb wave energy and allow incoming tidal water to percolate through the structure and present a sustainable, low maintenance structure of natural materials that will reduce erosion by the sea to a minimum. A large placement of rocks at the far end of the wall will protect the platform from outflanking.' Groynes With the most valuable part of the cliffs protected by Crag Walk, Walton on the Naze has placed wooden groynes along the whole beach to prevent longshore drift. Wooden groynes are a cheap way to maintain beaches for tourists who visit there. Since the coastal management project was only completed in 2011, there is little evidence to show how effective it has been, but it is estimated that Crag Walk will slow the erosion to 20m over the next 70 - 100 years. This is a massive improvement compared to the original 2m per year, preserving the valuable assets of the Naze coastline.
David Gager, the chairman of the Naze Protection Society said: "The completion of this very significant project marks the beginning of a bright new future'' By Ed Lamb
