Work to extend the popular Shoreham Beach boardwalk is underway!
Since Adur District Council installed the first section in 2011, the town’s beautiful beach has been accessible to all thanks to the modern walkway along the shingle.
This week, contractors working on behalf of the Council started laying the new section, which will see the route extended to Shoreham Fort.
Once complete, the boardwalk will be about one mile in length – meaning more of the unique environment of the protected beach will be opened up to all.
The extension, which runs on land owned by the Council, will link the current walkway which ends at The Burrells roundabout with Shoreham Fort.
It will follow the existing established footpath on the shingle beach between the patches of vegetation before linking up with the West Sussex County Council-owned footpath at Forthaven.
The work is taking place under permitted development rights which means planning permission is not needed.
