Overview

Littlehampton is a coastal harbour town at the mouth of the River Arun on the West Sussex coast. The structures at the harbour entrance are reaching the end of their working life and need renewing.

Royal HaskoningDHV have been assisting the client (Littlehampton Harbour Board) for the last couple of years to study the most appropriate way forward from a technical, environmental and economic perspective. The work has grown from an initial scoping study to now include funding applications, licenses and consenting, detailed site inspections, site investigation, engineering design and support to some initial construction works.

The presentation will cover:

  • Background & initial scoping study.
  • Coastal context and groyne renewal.
  • West training wall damage, re-design and consenting.
  • Construction of 40m of the west training wall.
  • Future work.
