Scilly’s Builders Being Offered Holgate’s Green Sea Wall Work

The Strand

Scilly’s builders and stonemasons are being offered work rebuilding the Holgate’s Green sea wall.

The Council project involves re-pointing the front face from the Lifeboat Slip to the Old Customs House to protect it from wave erosion.

The top of the wall will then be dug up to check for voids behind it, before being filled with cement slurry.

Recycled material from the new glass crusher at Moorwell will be used.

The Cornwall and Scilly Shoreline Management Plans highlighted the need for the repairs.

They propose maintaining existing sea defences to protect against future sea level rise or storm surges, using what’s called a ‘Hold the Line’ policy.

The Environment Agency has awarded the Council £86,000 but the money is to cover a range of works not just the repointing.

If you want to quote for the job, contact the Council’s Climate Control Officer, David Senior. The work should be completed in time for the start of the season.
