Lyme Regis Field Trip, June 2013

The 2013 SCOPAC field trip took elected members and offficers to Lyme Regis, West Dorset.

Lyme Regis continues to face considerable challenges from coastal erosion and landsliding, with many properties destroyed or damaged over the last 100 years. The field trip coincided with a recent phase of landslide reactivation along the SCOPAC coastline and throughout the rest of the country.

The field trip focused on the works undertaken since the early 1990's to prevent landsliding and coastal erosion. For more background information, please see www.dorsetforyou.com/lyme

Approximately 50 delegates attended the day which commenced with talks in Lyme Regis and a site visit to the Phase IV scheme works which are currently underway.
