Welcome to the official website of Strete in Devon, England, which is managed by Strete Parish Council. Strete is about a fifteen minute drive from Dartmouth. It is to be found on the high coastal ground at the eastern end of Slapton Sands. It's a good place to stay if you like exploring the local beaches and is also convenient for Kingsbridge, Totnes and Salcombe. Strete is situated on the South West Coastal Footpath and, with a variety of accommodation in the village, it is an ideal location to take a break in your journey. Take time to relax and enjoy the beautiful AONB surroundings.
70m of the remaining concrete sea wall opposite Torcross car park has been identified as a potential risk of failure should beach levels reduce because of storms similar to 2016.
A new sheet pile wall is to be installed to improve resilience to the A379 in line with the A379 Slapton realignment works further North.
The sea wall design is made from a sheet piled wall with a concrete capping beam continuing from the 2016 wall and extending to the length of the concrete wall (approx.70m).
During the works the car park will remain open with a temporary entrance, there will be traffic lights in place and contractors will be on site from Monday 8 October with an expected completion before Christmas.
