Consultation Open for Lincolnshire Coastal Strategy

The Environment Agency (EA) is launching a consultation on Monday, June 3rd on its new draft strategy to manage coastal flood risk between Saltfleet and Gibraltar Point over the next 100 years.

The EA’s existing flood management approach for the Lincolnshire area is to nourish beaches on an annual basis to replenish sand lost to the sea over the year.

This approach, without any additional control measures, is unlikely to remain a sustainable long term solution, reported the EA. This consultation provides residents, business owners and other stakeholders with an opportunity to give their views on the new strategy.

The draft strategy proposes a new approach, which looks to introduce rock structures onto the beach in combination with continued beach nourishment to reduce sand movement.

The configuration and exact size of the structures will be determined through detailed analysis and technical appraisals during the delivery phase of the strategy.

Commenting on the new draft strategy, EA Flood and Coastal Risk manager Deborah Campbell said: “This draft strategy proposes a new approach to coastal flood risk management, which will help us continue to manage flood risk for thousands of homes in Lincolnshire over the next 100 years.”

Last year we consulted with the community on a shortlist of six options. We are very pleased to now present this strategy following rigorous environmental, technical and economical assessments as well as wide engagement with residents and other stakeholders,” Campbell added.

This public consultation is open for a twelve-week period and the EA invites everyone to get involved and share their views.
