In May 1998, the Stanmoor Bank Feasibility Study and Appraisal Report was issued to statutory consultees for comment. The Environment Agency in considering a range of flood defence options, identified the preferred option as On-line Defence Works, with Crest Level Option A (a maximum crest level raising of 0.08m over a 130m length of the bank). This option and crest level was perceived to provide security against breach and maintained a I in 85 year minimum standard of protection against overtopping. It was proved to be viable on engineering grounds and it was the preferred option on economic and environmental grounds. Since the Feasibility Study and Appraisal Report (May 1998) the Agency have progressed with outline design and there have been some minor changes to the scheme and the design of the preferred option (as described in Section 3.0). The aim of this Addendum is therefore to inform consultees of these alterations and to identify associated temporary and permanent environmental impacts.
