Coastal defence maintenance work recommences at Felixstowe - as part of the preparations for the new season we are planning to recommence maintenance work to a number of coastal defence structures in Central and South Felixstowe.
Suffolk Coastal and Waveney's Coastal Management Team have responsibilities along a 76km stretch of coast from Corton, near Lowestoft to Landguard Point at Felixstowe. They are directly responsible for 36km of coastline with 19km of hard sea defences, including over 300 groynes.
