We are grateful to Judith and the Sandbanks Beach office for seeking our input and taking time to discus potential improvements to the facilities at Shore Road.
The storms of winter 2013/14 caused a significant loss of sand along this frontage and work was prioritised to ensure the beach is wide enough to protect properties and infrastructure against further winter storms. Read project timetable.
