A sandy beach and new flooding defences – how Helensburgh’s seafront could look

The first draft of a dramatic potential new development of Helensburgh’s seafront has been revealed.

The Helensburgh Seafront Development Project, a charity set up this summer, aims to install wavebreakers which would reduce flooding, put sand on the beach, dredge the pier and install water sports areas.

It is early days for the project, but ideas so far include:

  • A seafront defence wall one metre above the pier
  • A covered ‘Helensburgh History’ walkway
  • Sand restored to the beach
  • Three calm zones, for pedalo rides, swimming, windsurfing and dinghy training and mooring yachts and dinghies.

  1. How tough are these wavebreakers? Helensburgh seafront is a pretty inhospitable place in a winter storm from the south west.
