Shoreham Adur Flood Defense Scheme on Display

The Environment Secretary and the Chief Executive of the Environment Agency were part of a delegation which yesterday, December 8, visited the the Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls scheme.

Andrea Leadsom, Sir James Bevan and the local MP Tim Loughton were shown round the site, which is being delivered by Team Van Oord (TVO).

This £31 million flood defense scheme is a great example of local businesses working with government to help boost local development,” said Ms Andrea Leadsom.

The Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Scheme – due to be complete in 2018 – is being delivered by TVO on behalf of the Environment Agency, Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.

Under the scheme improvements will be carried out along 7.2km of defenses along the River Adur between Shoreham Old Fort and the A27, to significantly improve protection from tidal flooding to properties and businesses on both banks of the river.

The scheme will also improve defenses for Brighton City Airport, which was extensively flooded when the previous embankment failed during high tides in December 2013.
