Burst sewage main at Bulverhythe
Update 30/07/2021: Bulverhythe beach will be closed until further notice.
Hastings Borough Council is working with Southern Water and Environment Agency following the burst sewage main under the cycle path at Bulverhythe yesterday afternoon (Wednesday 28 July). Council officers attended yesterday evening and again early this morning.
Southern Water has advised that the work may continue over the weekend, and this will restrict vehicular access to many of the 'West of Haven' beach huts. It will also mean that Cinque Ports Way is likely to be congested, and the council is asking visitors to the area to park sensibly, and not obstruct access to Southern Water's work site.
Southern Water is contacting the beach hut owners who may be directly affected by flooding.
