15/08/2019 - Basin Road South, beach

We are carrying out some essential coast protection work along Basin Road South in front of Parker Steel and Tarmac/Hanson. Whilst it is not possible to 'close' the beach completely we have placed fencing and signs to make clear where the work is going on. All members of the public are asked to keep away from the area as much as possible, paying particular attention to dogs and children in the area. There is very heavy plant operating continuously, placing large unstable rocks with limited visibility. Thanks for your cooperation.

27/02/2019 - Dry Dock, round head

Unfortunately, we have had to close this area for safety due to significant concerns about the supporting brickwork.  The round head to the south-west of the Dry Dock is over 160 years old and is failing at its base.  We will endeavour to determine the cause and remedy for this as quickly as possible, but the area may remain closed for some time while investigation and repair work is carried out. Please note, the public walkway across the locks will remain open. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
