Title: Pagham to East Head coastal defence strategy 2007 : initial consultation, a guide for local communities
Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Environment Agency and Chichester and Arun District Councils are looking at options for managing coastal flooding and erosion between Pagham Beach and East Head on the Manhood Peninsula. This will result in the Pagham to East Head coastal defence strategy 2007. With climate changing, sea levels rising and increased storminess, our existing coastal defences are under greater threat. This strategy will set out the preferred options for managing the areas coastal defences over the next 100 years. The previous strategy completed in 2001 did not gain approval from the Government. Since then government guidance has changed the way we consider management options for the coast. We used the revised guidance to reassess the options and completed a Technical Review document in 2005. The results of the review are given as an indicative preferred option for each of the frontages later in this document. For some frontages, the option has changed from the 2001 strategy. This document, A guide for local communities, sets out some of the key issues we need to address in the final strategy. Included with this document there is a short questionnaire.
