Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP) together with the Portsmouth City Council recently organized two drop-in sessions on new coastal defenses at Tipner Lake.
The exhibitions, held in late-February at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth and the Howard Road Community Centre, were a huge success, according to ESCP.
These new coastal defenses are being built as part of the North Portsea Island Coastal Flood Defense scheme which has been designed to reduce the risk of coastal flooding and erosion to the area over the next 100 years.
This phase of the works will be from the Mountbatten Centre, Twyford Avenue to the Ports Creek Roundabout and will form Phase 3 of the North Portsea Island works.
Construction is due to start in April / May 2017, with completion expected in autumn 2019.
Phase 1 of the works, completed in August 2016, was at Anchorage Park and Phase 2, completed in October 2016, took place at Milton Common.
