Residents at our recently quarterly meeting asked how the project for renovating the shelters on Highcliffe Cliff top were progressing. BCP have now informed us that the project is progressing well and that on site works are planned for September/October, with a view to opening in late Autumn.
The designs have been strongly informed by public consultation and have now been finalised. The works have been extended to include some refreshment to the further shelter as well as the one by the Cliff Hanger Café, although the focus is still very much on the latter.
Becky Beaumont project manager from BCP says “We are very pleased to have local resident Professor Vincent May on board and helping advise with the content of all three of these boards and here is an outline of the work that will be carried out”:
Mary Reader form Highcliffe Residents Association said “ We are pleased to see that this project is progressing and will help to improve these rather tired looking shelters. The involvement of residents in this project has been of great benefit and is yet another example of being able to use the valuable resource and knowledge for the benefit of everyone. It was thanks to the council and residents working together that the Zig Zag Path was replaced and now we have another project to enhance the visitor experience to our cliff top”.
