Fareham-Gosport Coastal Strategy Open for Comments

Fareham - Gosport Coastal Strategy Open for Comments

The River Hamble to Portchester Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management Strategy is being undertaken by the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP) on behalf of Fareham and Gosport Borough Councils.

The strategy proposes coastal management options for the next 100 years along the Fareham and Gosport Coastline. The strategy covers a 58km (36 mile) stretch of coastline between Portchester Castle (in Portsmouth Harbor) to Burridge on the east bank of the River Hamble. This coastal frontage is highly varied and ranges from very sheltered estuarine and creek environments to much more exposed open coast beach environments.

UK’s Environment Agency approved the development of this strategy and have made funds available for the work in 2013/14 through the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) ‘Flood Defense Grant in Aid’ funding pot.

The strategy is now in a 3 month period of public consultation. This will run from 1st September 2014 to 1st December 2014.
