Title: Portchester Castle to Emsworth draft coastal flood and erosion risk management strategy : summary document
Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Environment Agency is working in partnership with Fareham Borough, Portsmouth City, Havant Borough and Chichester District Councils to produce the Portchester Castle to Emsworth coastal Pood and erosion risk management strategy. This document introduces the key issues we need to address and presents our draft strategy findings. Flooding and erosion are real risks facing people and their property on the coastline between Portchester and Emsworth. With the climate changing, sea levels rising and increasingly frequent and intense storms, our existing coastal defences are under constant threat. If there were no coastal defences today, more than 900 residential properties in lowlying areas could flood each year from a 1 in 200 chance event. With rising sea levels this number could increase to 4,200 in 100 years time.
