Video below shows the wave impact on the Cobb harbour during Storm Ciaran on the 2nd November 2023. This demonstrates the role of the Cobb as a coastal defence and breakwater for the town and the wave impact on the structure.
The project team managing the Cobb Stabilisation Scheme are exploring additional funding options as rising inflation has meant there is a need to add to the £3million budget. Meanwhile, the Cobb itself is being routinely monitored by the Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) team for damage.
A Commercial and Recreational Users Access survey aimed to find out how and when commercial and recreational users access the Cobb has now closed. The responses from the survey will provide valuable information for the project team to help find the least disruptive solution to undertaking essential stabilisation works to the Cobb. Survey closed on 18th October 2023. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey.
