A £1.3 million scheme put in place to protect Bridlington’s seawall has been recognised at a regional awards ceremony.

The Coastal Protection Scheme (Phase 1), which began construction in early 2013 along the Royal Princes Parade, scooped the RICS Pro Yorkshire prize for Infrastructure at a ceremony last week.

On Friday 23 May, judges said: “The coastal defences along the Royal Prince’s Parade at the North Pier end of the harbour were at serious risk of failure.

“The scheme was carried out in an extremely challenging environment avoiding the busy summer period and impact on tourism.”
