Bunn Leisure - Privately Funded Coastal Protection

This project presented many varied challenges. To take advantage of the best weather and sea conditions, the project was undertaken over the summer months. This required extensive planning and liaison to ensure that the holiday park operated as normal, resulting in the beach works actually became an attraction. The shallow approaches to the beach meant that timing of marine deliveries of rock and shingle were critical within the tidal cycle.
