Transcript of 254GEOANTARTICA

Walton-on-the-Naze Walton-on-the-Naze is a small maritime tourist destination with 6,000 habitants that depend on seasonal tourism as the main source of income. The area is diverse in local wildlife and the rapidly eroding cliffs provide fossils that are left exposed attracting tourists to the area. Walton-on-The-Naze Shoreline Management Plan The Situation Walton on the Naze suffers from rapid erosion pf 2m/ year due to a 'bunched' submarine contour and the pourous rocks composed of red crag and London clay. Aging coastal defenses that are in dire need of renewal. Incomes have fallen steadily in the last 20 years due to the normalcy of holidays abroad. Houses are being endangered and beaches are now mere masses of concrete instead of the sandy beaches they once were. The area suffers from a high aging population which yields little profit.

The area does not provide much income and it's low population density and local wildlife means that this village-classed settlement does not hold the various qualities needed to stimulate funding for coastal protection. Groynes have been planned to placed on the northern end of the beach as revetments have been proven ineffective at protecting the waste disposal plant. The revetments are also planned to be replenished; been replenished, this does not build on existing premises therefore not disturbing wildlife. Funds have also been diverted into building a low-coast artificial reef composed of tires as had been suggested by the West Yorkshire borough council at Dimlington Highland, this will limit erosion as waves break earlier and may provide revenue

However, this will increase the amount of black sediment that reaches the shore, however if funds are diverted into flagship regeneration, Walton-on-the-Naze can profit from 'London Money' instead of depending on seasonal visitors: Walton-on-thE-Naze should be converted into a middle class housing estate to provide housing for the ever-increasing demand for housing in Essex.
