Lydd Ranges Sea Defences Scheme - Timeline

Closes 23 Jul 2025

Opened 21 Jul 2021


The site compound is located within the Environment Agency’s existing compound at Jury’s Gap.  We have also established a satellite compound at South Brooks, which will reduce some of the activity that otherwise would have taken place at Jury’s Gap. We will be starting works on the beach in summer 2021.

Please see the map below which shows the key works for each year:

  • 2021: works between Jury’s Gap and South Brooks (groynes, Green Wall, beach nourishment). There may also be some emergency works required to the outer end of Denge outfall.
  • 2022: work at Jury’s Gap (groynes, rock revetment, beach nourishment), and Denge Outfall (relocation of tidal chamber).
  • 2023: South Brooks (Green Wall).

During this work, the section of the beach where we are working will be closed.  For your own safety please follow the erected signage and do not enter the working areas.
