Meeting on Seaton Beach Management Plan Set for August 30

Seaton’s local community will have the opportunity to learn more about how the town’s Beach Management Plan (BMP) is progressing at a drop-in session on 30 August, from 3pm onwards, at the Marshlands Center in Seaton, the East Devon District Council said in its latest release. 

At the session people will have the opportunity to meet officers from East Devon District Council (the project lead) and  the council’s consultants CH2M to discuss the outcomes of the initial analysis for Seaton’s BMP, which has recently been completed by CH2M.

CH2M has been looking at information from a wide variety of sources including East Devon, the Environment Agency, Coastal Monitoring and local people to produce their initial analysis of the environment, coastal defenses, coastal processes flood and erosion damages.

These baselines will be used to inform future actions of the BMP, including looking at options to improve Seaton’s sea defenses where necessary.

Overall there are relatively few properties at risk from flooding and coastal erosion in the town, largely in part due to work already carried out by East Devon, the Environment Agency and their predecessors to manage any potential threats, the council said.

CH2M’s initial research has so far shown that works to improve defenses in Seaton could be eligible for up to £0.5 million of funding from the Government to help manage these risks.
