How to keep updated
From today until the completion of the project, we will be posting updates about the scheduled works on our 'Sea Defence Works Updates' webpage. These updates will include any late changes necessitated by weather conditions.
You can find full details of the other planned works around the islands on our Climate Adaptation Scilly webpages.
Whilst this activity will cause some disruption to residents and visitors, particularly during the summer months, we will aim to keep this to a minimum. Please bear with us while we complete these necessary works.
If you have any questions about the project, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01720 620118.
