You are invited to attend the second public engagement event about the planned £5million scheme to stabilise cliffs along the Clacton and Holland on Sea coastline.

The event will take place at the Kingscliff Hotel on 31 October between 12noon and 6pm.

We have been working with contractors Mott MacDonald to assess the various options available to enhance and protect the cliffs in this area of coastline.

The cliffs are currently unstable in several areas and therefore prone to shallow landslides.

Some sections along the Clacton frontage have already had to be closed off due to the movement of the slopes above the promenade.

The initiative follows on from the successful recently constructed £36million coastal protection scheme.

This latest project has become necessary as the measures put in place in the 1950s and 1960s are now coming to the end of their natural life.

The money for the forthcoming work has been found from the coastal protection scheme completed in October 2015 which came in ahead of time and under budget.

It will be carried out with minimal disruption to the public and other users.

The benefits will be cost effective maintenance of the cliffs, an improved public realm and experience, and restoration of beach huts.
