Arun East Bank Scheme Moves Ahead

The Environment Agency is working in partnership with Arun District Council, West Sussex County Council and Littlehampton Harbour Board to improve the tidal flood defenses along the East Bank of the River Arun in Littlehampton.

The work is being carried out by the contractors, Volker Stevin. Collaboration and co-operation is key to delivering this £14.5 million scheme.

The Environment Agency started building the scheme at the end of October 2013.

The scheme will improve flood defenses from the lighthouse on the Promenade, to north of the A259. It will raise the height of flood defenses on the east bank from Arun Parade near the mouth of the River Arun, through the town center to north of the A259. Work is expected to finish in spring 2015.

When the scheme is finished, it will protect over 2,000 residential properties and businesses against 100 years of projected sea level rise.

Work on the flood defense wall and capping beam are now complete. Work on the new landscaping is underway. These works are scheduled to be completed during January 2015. Work to build the new flood defenses in River Road has started and is due to be completed by spring 2015.
