Completion of new seawall and promenade at Hill Head

The barrier rail along Hill Head promenade has now been installed, marking the completion of a £1m project which will protect the popular stretch of coastline from the effects of extreme weather and sea level rise.

The project, in partnership with Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP), involved construction of a new and improved seawall, beach replenishment, extensive timber groyne maintenance as well as an improved amenity area.

Cllr Keith Evans, Fareham Executive Member for Planning and Development said: 

"I'm delighted this project has been completed and to such a high standard. The works represent a significant commitment by Fareham Borough Council to not only maintain but also to improve this much-loved stretch of our coastline and ensure residents can continue to enjoy it well into the future."

Further information can be found on the Hill Head Coastal Project webpage.
