Abstract

This report summarise a study that used numerical modelling of beach plan shape changes to advise on the best option for beach control structures between Shore Road, Sandbanks and Branksome Dene Chine. The beaches along this part of the shoreline of Poole Bay have recently been improved by a recharge scheme, during which sand removed from the entrance channel to Poole Harbour was pumped by a dredger. It is anticipated that similar recharge operations will be needed in the future, at approximately 10 years intervals, to maintain the beaches at a sufficient width to protect the seawalls and prevent recession of the soft cliffs along this part of the coast. This strategy will also help maintain and enhance the amenity, tourism and recreational values of Poole Borough’s coastline.
