Dorset Council will be carrying out essential beach maintenance from Monday 4 March at Greenhill, on Weymouth Esplanade.

A section of the beach at Greenhill Gardens – from the Seascape Café heading south towards the Beach Café at the end of Brunswick Terrace – will be closed to the public while the work is ongoing.

The work is expected to take one week to complete and during this time, the beach will be closed to the public to allow the heavy machinery to operate safely. Pedestrian access to the promenade may also be disrupted. The Council is also importing some Portland stone to protect the toe of the wall.

The works will be managed by Dorset Council’s Highways team, and the delivery of rock will be done via the promenade from Brunswick Terrace. Highways officers will be providing some traffic management to ensure that members of the public using the promenade are kept safe.

Cllr Ray Bryan, Dorset Council’s Portfolio Holder for Environment, Travel and Environment, said:

“We know that many local people and visitors value and use the promenade regularly for lots of different reasons, which is why it’s important we carry out regular maintenance to ensure it stays in good condition.

“Despite the continuing inclement weather, this area continues to see high footfall and we’re grateful for people’s patience and understanding while we carry out this essential work.”

Without this maintenance work, the foundations of the seawall could be undermined by the action of the waves which in turn would cause significant damage to the promenade over time.
