Coastal Protection Scheme

Details & Location

Planning Application for a coastal protection scheme which would prevent the accelerated coastal erosion upon the once wide sandy beach, near Hopton Holiday Village, near Great Yarmouth.


Consented 2nd April 2014 by Great Yarmouth Council

Stephenson Halliday was commissioned by Marine Planning Consultants Ltd to assist with the landscape / seascape and visual elements of the planning application.  Our assistance incorporated:

•    Preparation of the landscape / seascape and visual aspects of the Environmental Screening and Scoping Report;
•    Assistance with the development design;
•    Preparation of the Landscape / Seascape and Visual Impact Assessment for the proposed coastal protection scheme.

The proposed scheme incorporated the construction of 10 rock armour groynes 50m in length extending out to sea which would provide a level of protection to the existing coastline.  The detailed assessment by Stephenson Halliday accommodated the construction and operational development stages and confirmed the overall long term landscape / seascape and visual benefits of the proposed development.
