Isle of Wight Coastal Strategy Consultation Opens

The Isle of Wight council and the Environment Agency have launched a three month public consultation on a draft Coastal Strategy for the West Wight shoreline.

The strategy coastline includes the towns of Yarmouth, Cowes, East Cowes, Freshwater, Totland, Colwell, Newport Harbor and surrounding areas.

The public consultation opened 31 March and will run to 30 June 2016 and is an opportunity for people to learn about the proposals that have been put forward to manage future coastal flood and erosion risks to the West Wight shoreline.

The ‘West Wight Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management Strategy’ recommends the preferred approaches needed to reduce or adapt to future coastal risks. It also includes proposals for future priority schemes and examines how they could be funded.

The priority schemes recommended by the Strategy include flood risk reduction in Cowes, East Cowes and Yarmouth, with proposed use of Temporary Flood Barriers and Property Level Protection measures.

Future schemes will be developed using the new ’partnership funding’ approach, which seeks funding from a wide range of sources.
