The council's City Development Committee agreed to further flooding defence works at Riverside. This will cover the western section from the Bridgeview Station Restaurant to the airport; as residents will be aware the area east of this was completed at the start of 2018.
The Team Leader in the council's infrastucture team has updated me as follows :
"The works generally consist of repointing the existing sea wall, replacing existing damaged stone copes and resurfacing the existing car parking area directly in front of the new flood-defence set-back wall. Works also include the installation of a new footpath and drainage directly behind the wall.
Works are currently programmed to commence on-site in February 2020 and will be completed by June 2020."
As I have long campaigned for car park improvements for the section of parking west of the main public car park, the inclusion of surfacing it is very welcome.
Details of the area of the flooding defence works is given below :
