Managing Risk of Tidal Flooding

The Environment Agency is currently investigating options to manage the risk of tidal flooding at Starcross and Cockwood on the Exe Estuary.

It was accelerated as part of the March 2015 Budget announcement regarding England’s 6-year flood defense program.

This project was identified as one of the priority schemes detailed in the Exe Estuary Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy (EEFCRMS).

At the moment, the project is in appraisal stage, meaning that the agency now needs to make their case internally to acquire funding for the scheme. It has already started discussions with community representatives, parish councils, government consenting bodies and landowners.

The Environment Agency is looking to start work at Starcross and Cockwood in line with the planned works at Dawlish Warren (including the management of the sand spit).

The following timescales are anticipated:

  • 2016: detailed design stage
  • 2017/2018: begin construction
