Clacton on Sea Weather Station

I am now using a Davis Vantage Vue Weather Station and have now made up a set of pages to display the data. The weather station is located in Clacton on Sea, essex, UK. The Davis Vue weather station monitors wind speed and direction, rain fall, outside and inside temperatures and outside and inside humidity. You can display The Clacton on Sea Weather for now, today, last month and last year as well as a page that displays a full set of live weather gauges. There is also a page that shows the latest animated satellite weather images from around the world. I will soon add a live weather cam showing the real time local weather.

Clacton on Sea & Holland on Sea Beach Protection Scheme

Timetable of works

Estimated dates

Works being undertaken

What to expect

25 August to November/December 2014

Construction of the new groynes and beach recharge

Rock will be delivered from sea onto the beach. Large excavators and construction plant will be working along the beach to build the groynes. The beach recharge will be pumped onshore. The beach and promenade will be closed for health and safety reasons. However once bays are complete they will be opened to the public when it is safe to do so.

12 September to 18 September 2014

Removal of existing concrete and timber groynes

Excavators and dumptrucks worked along the beach to remove the structures between the junction of The Esplanade/Kings Parade and Cliff Road

From 10/15 September to 25 September (approx)

Temporary beach recharge

The Sospan Dau rainbowed material onto the frontage mainly between the junction of The Esplanade/Kings Parade and Cliff Road

 

The Local Development Order (LDO) for Clacton and Holland on Sea Seafront was
approved by Tendering Council Planning Committee on the 11th November 2014.

Over many years the sand has been washed away after most of the wooden water
breakes have rotted and broken away. The 36 million pound scheme will build new
water breaks out of rock and new sand pumped in to re make the beaches.

Here is a map showing the beaches being regenerated in the red
