The £8 million Cromer Coast Protection Scheme, 100% funded by grant aid, is designed to ensure the protection of Cromer for the next 100 years. In this first stage the walls and groynes most seriously at risk have been refurbished. Approximately one third of the walls and Promenade are a Listed Building. The design and construction methods had to ensure the character detail of these structures was not compromised and the final finish had to blend with the surrounding buildings.

The scheme will:

  • Reduce the impact of the sea along the Cromer frontage.
  • Help to preserve a stable beach in front of the seawalls for as long as possible.
  • Preserve the amenity of the beach, including beach access.
  • Maintain the historic and visual character of Cromer's sea front.
