An Update on the Boscombe Surf Reef

There has been a great deal of work being made behind the scenes for Europe’s first Artificial Surf Reef in Boscombe. There has been delay in DEFRA processing the licence because of the uniqueness and complexity of this project. However there is currently meaningful progress being made and DEFRA has offered the Bournemouth Borough Council a meeting to discuss the project. Once Bournemouth Borough Council receives a licence from DEFRA, it can then order geotextile sandbags and webbing base from New Zealand and Australia.

Bournemouth Borough Council is planning to begin construction in early Autumn 2007. This is subject to license being issued in the near future and, together with favourable weather conditions for construction, this would allow for completion in November 2007.
