Final Meetings on Shoreham Adur Scheme

The Environment Agency is working with Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council to reduce the risk of flooding to Shoreham-by-Sea and Lancing.

Construction of the extensive improvements to the flood defenses will begin in spring 2016. These works are subject to approval of both funding and planning permission.

There will be two final public exhibitions in Shoreham in September at:

  • Shoreham Sailing Club, Tuesday 15 September, 4pm to 8pm;
  • Adur Outdoor Activity Center, Wednesday 16 September, 4pm to 8pm.

At these exhibitions the final designs will be displayed including a 3D visualization of the finished defenses and how they fit into the landscape.

The Agency has been developing a major improvements scheme called the Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls. The scheme is separated into 10 reaches, or lengths of the estuarine bank. The design of the defenses varies between the reaches as they have different characteristics and are subject to different pressures and potential flood impacts.
