Bulldozers have once again moved onto Medmerry beach to provide continued sea defence to the Medmerry bank this winter.

The bulldozers will reshape over 15,000 tonnes of shingle, protecting local infrastructure such as local caravan parks, the B2145 and the local water treatment works.

Operations began in October 2010 and will continue until March next year.

The planning application for the new Medmerry managed realignment scheme has been submitted to Chichester District Council for approval.
