Saltmarsh Coast Hub coming soon to Promenade Park

Published on Friday, 1st December 2017

Laid hedges

Regular visitors to Promenade Park may have noticed the hedges on the eastern most field have been traditionally “laid”, this is in preparation for the arrival of the new Saltmarsh Coast Hub.

The new hub will consist of a single story shelter and viewing platform giving fantastic views across the Blackwater Estuary to Northey Island. The hub forms part of a network of coastal information points installed recently as part of the Council’s Dengie Gateway Project.

The hedges were laid by Master Hedgelayer Jim Wallden of Haskett Ltd.  The laying of the hedge will encourage healthier re-growth and wildlife. It will also allow better views from the park across the saltmarsh toward Northey Island.
