As you are aware, the current build-up of sand is having an impact on surrounding areas, such as the harbour beach, Eastern Gardens and adjoining highway.  In order to alleviate this the Isle of Wight Council has arranged to undertake sand levelling works at Ryde.

To prevent safety issues on the highway and further pedestrian obstructions, IWC have arranged to have the beach levels lowered. Along with these safety issues IWC have also taken into consideration that Covid restrictions are relaxing and more people are visiting the beach, and feel it is important that IWC commence these activities before the summer season begins.

For your information, this work will involve the use of large plant such as diggers, dumpers etc. Although the contractors have already set up their compound today, the actual works  will commence on Monday 19th April 2021 at 08:00.    

To inform the public of our intentions, IWC have today started to display notices along the areas, to prewarn the public of the works.
