AMEY STARTS WORK ON COASTAL PROTECTION PROJECT

The project forms part of Welsh Government’s Coastal Risk Management Programme

Amey Consulting has been awarded the design and development of the Mumbles Coastal Protection project by the City and County of Swansea. 

The project forms part of Welsh Government’s Coastal Risk Management Programme and provides an opportunity to address the current issues of the condition of the Mumbles’ sea wall and address long-term flood risk affecting the community.  

With the project now underway, Amey Consulting is leading the multi-discipline design team, working closely with marine and coastal flood risk management experts JBA Consulting, and design and planning consultants LDA Design. 

The Mumbles section of the sea wall and promenade is a significant asset lying close to the heart of the settlement, providing views across Swansea Bay, access to the foreshore and a focus for tourism leisure activity and events. 

The project will support Mumbles as a sustainable tourist destination by not only reducing the long-term risk of flooding and coastal erosion, but also celebrate what makes Mumbles special. 

The work will maximise the opportunity for wider community benefits such as improvements to amenities and providing recreation value of the promenade for visitors and residents. Opportunities for economic and social regeneration in the community will include the potential for high quality improvements to the promenade, improved linkages to the community and waterfront whilst preserving and enhancing the natural and historic environment. 

Caroline Lewis, Country Director Wales, Amey Consulting, commented: “This project aligns with environmental and sustainable development priorities where we are collectively working to tackle climate change. We’ve taken a collaborative approach to partnering, working with JBA Consulting and LDA Design in order to deliver safe and aesthetically pleasing outcomes for residents and visitors along the Mumbles coastline.”
