Hall-Patch describes his scheme as a ‘two-storey high canvas of white salt bricks facing the north sea, designed to weather away over time and allowing nature to reveal the marks of the sun, rain and wind-blown sand’. The project is due to complete next summer.

MSA-Gruff proposal’s is billed as a ‘wind tower that amplifies the natural wind conditions of the site’. Plans are expected to be submitted before Christmas.
