Title: Lincshore nourishment scheme : consultation document
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document has been produced as part of an environmental impact assessment of the beach nourishment scheme for the Lincolnshire coast between Mablethorpe and Skegness, known as the Lincshore coast. The purpose of this document is to inform you of the progress of the study and invite your comments. The Environment Agency has permissive powers to maintain the coastal defences that provide protection to the Lincshore coastline. Since 1991, two sea defence strategy reviews (in 1997 and 2003) have concluded that the preferred sea defence option for the Lincshore coast is to hold the line through a series of beach nourishment schemes. The Agency is to carry out an environmental impact assessment of the Lincshore nourishment operations for the next 5 years (2005-2010). The study area lies along the Lincolnshire coast, between the coastal resorts of Mablethorpe and Skegness, approximately 24km long.
