Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls 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.

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.

The Agency held a number of consultation events earlier in 2015 to gain feedback on the designs. They have taken the feedback received on board and have incorporated changes into the detailed designs. The feedback has included recommendations from the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), input from various experts and consultation with stakeholders including the public.

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.
