Photo Competition for Sandwich Scheme

A ceremony and photo competition are to be held in the Sandwich Guild Hall to celebrate the completion of the town’s new £21.7 million flood defense scheme, one of the largest flood defense scheme in Kent for decades.

The Sandwich Town Tidal Defense Scheme has been delivered in partnership by the Environment Agency, Pfizer and Kent County Council, and is and the first of its kind in terms of being delivered in partnership with both public and private finance.

The scheme has involved works on 16 individual reaches of the river and will reduce the risk of tidal flooding to Sandwich and Stonar Loop. It provides a 1 in 200 standard protection to 488 homes and 94 commercial properties in Sandwich, including Discovery Park.

The completion ceremony will be held on Friday 11 September at 4pm in the Guild Hall in Sandwich. There will be an exhibition of the scheme works between 4pm and 7pm and members of the project team will be about to discuss the project and answer questions.
