Plans for a major coastal defence scheme in Essex are being finalised.
The project for Clacton and Holland-on-Sea will cost £30 million pounds and will be the second largest coast protection scheme in the UK.
Ground investigation works have been completed in Clacton as part of the first stages of a coastal defence plan.
Construction should start next year at Clacton and Holland-on-sea with 25 fishtail groynes being installed and the beach being recharged.
It'll cost £30m but it won't be known until September if the Environment Agency will contribute £19m to the project.
