PUBLIC consultations on ways of stabilising Southwold's harbour wall ended yesterday (Tuesday).

Now, the preferred option will go before Waveney District Council's cabinet on March 18. Members will receive a report recommending an option to be taken forward for detailed design and construction.

Consultations began on February 3, and comments received during the process, plus the findings of a study by consultants HR Wallingford, will be part of the report to the cabinet.

Waveney's preferred option is a �1.5m scheme for the north dock wall that would involve fronting 40 metres of wall with steel piling and building a further 238m of rock slopes.

But Wallingford's concluded that a different option, involving more steel piling and seasonal pontoons, might strike the best balance between what people wanted and value for money.
