Lydd Ranges Flood Alleviation Scheme VIDEO

The Environment Agency has just released a video of the Lydd Ranges Sea Defence scheme, a major investment being delivered by the EA in partnership with the Ministry of Defence.

The project involves the refurbishment and raising of timber groynes, improving the flood defence bank known as the green wall, and recharging the shingle beach.

The EA has appointed specialist marine contractors Van Oord to carry out Sea Defence works at Lydd Ranges. Construction started here in 2021 and will take place over the spring, summer and autumn months of 2022 and 2023.

The video explains how this vital project will be delivered.

Lydd Ranges forms part of the Folkestone to Cliff End Strategy (FoCES) approved by Defra in 2010. The strategy sets out the plans to manage flood and erosion risks along the coastline of Romney Marsh over the next 100 years, taking the predicted impacts of climate change into account.
