Thousands of tonnes of sand will be moved next week to even out Lowestoft beach before the busy summer season.

Waveney District Council will be carrying out work between Monday and Friday on the South Beach to move sand and shingle from just above the high water mark south of the Claremont Pier to a location in front of the seawall from the children's corner ramp to the Flying Fifteens teashop.

Fine sand will also be excavated from next to the seawall south of the Claremont Pier to reduce sand getting blown on to the promenade. This sand will then be used to cover the new sand and shingle at children's corner to improve the quality of the beach.

The beach will remain partially open during the work, with signs and safety barriers, and between 6,000 and 8,000 tonnes of beach material will be moved. Visitors are asked to avoid the areas that the machines are working in.
