There are about to be big works on Deal's flood defences. The flood defence works will change the seafront with a bigger wall and more shingle on the beach.
As it will make a big change, I met with the Environment Agency to check that they had made a full consultation and that they had taken on board all concerns that may have been raised. They told me they consulted the Chamber of Commerce, the Town Council and the Deal Society and that all those groups approved of the works.
In the picture I am holding a sample of the concrete that will be used in the wall and Cllr Sue Chandler, deputy leader of the district council, is holding a sample of the blue material that will go on the ground and highlight to partially sighted and blind people that they are approaching the wall.
