    Hill Head, Fareham, Hampshire



    Knights Brown was appointed to carry out the second phase of the Hill Head Coastal Protection Scheme. The aim of this project was to develop, design and build a cost effective coastal defence solution that maintains amenity and leisure access along this frontage for the lifetime of the structure. We worked closely with Fareham Borough Council and the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership team to produce a top quality structure that not only protects the existing beach huts and clay cliffs, but also enhances the well used coastal path at Hill Head.

    The new promenade was developed as part of a £1m scheme to boost the sea defences around Hill Head for the next 50 years to reduce the risk of flooding and prevent damage to the beach huts.

    The site is adjacent to a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a Special Protection Area (SPA) and a RAMSAR. To minimise the impact on local wildlife, the work was programmed for the period between June and October.
