A landslip occurred in November 2002 on the seafront at Southend-on-Sea, leading to the local council funding geological surveys as well as resultant repair work. Repairs included significant sheet piling works extending from the top of the cliff to several metres below sea level. The cliff face then had to be re-profiled to blend in with the surrounding areas.

As part of this reinstatement process, the majority of the slope was hydroseeded with a hardy flower mix containing a mix of annual and biennial species, including a significant proportion of native British species.

A low maintenance drought-tolerant grass mix was sown in the remaining areas.

Access to the area meant the suspension of parking bays along the seafront, therefore works had to be carefully timed to minimise these closures and two hydroseeding machines were employed to that end.

The works will be revisited as the season progresses to ensure success.
