Meeting Set on Slaughden Flood Defence Work

The Environment Agency will hold a public drop-in on Thursday, 21 January, from 2pm to 6pm at Aldeburgh Parish Church Hall, to discuss upcoming flood defense improvement work in Slaughden.

Maintaining the flood defense at Slaughden is important for the whole estuary,” said David Kemp, Coastal Team Leader at the Environment Agency.

Rock toe protection will absorb the impact of strong waves which will reduce the risk of any breaches to the seawall. This will allow us to continue managing flood risk to the Alde/Ore estuary.

The work will take place in front of the seawall at Slaughden beach and will extend the existing protection from the Martello Tower to near Aldeburgh Yacht Club.

The Environment Agency will be constructing approximately 200m of rock footings to protect the main defence at Slaughden. Rock will be delivered by sea and placed in front of the seawall before reinstating the beach with shingle.

A temporary footpath closure will be in place for public safety, but the Environment Agency will keep the footpath open wherever possible.
