Sea defence application submitted
A PLANNING application to replace part of Weston s sea defences has been submitted to the unitary authority.
A PLANNING application to replace part of Weston's sea defences has been submitted to the unitary authority.
Proposals to put in a new 'scour protection apron,' the structure which stops the main wall wearing away, have been handed to North Somerset Council.
In 2006 a planning application for new sea defences was controversially granted but the Environment Agency has also specified that the scour protection also needs replacing from Knightstone Island to the Grand Pier.
It is considered to be in reasonable repair but not to have considerable enough strength to prevent long-term wear.

The new structure will be concrete and most of it will be located under beach level, with some possibly visible areas.
