Stone removal on Laxey Beach should 'lessen' coastal overtopping

Thu, 07 Dec 2023

Stones have been removed from Laxey Beach by the Department of Infrastructure to help ‘lessen’ coastal overtopping in the village.
Garff Commissioners says it’s been lobbying the government to do some beach management for a long time because of the amount of damage it caused the village in the past.
It’s also hoped moving some stones to the foot of the sea wall will ‘protect’ the structure.
Commissioner Melanie Christian says the board hopes the department’s plan is successful.
