Title: Canvey Island flood defences consultation
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This Environment Agency booklet aims to describe the Canvey Island Flood Defences consultation. Canvey Island is a mainly urban area on the Essex side of the Thames Estuary. The island is a low lying area of reclaimed tidal mudflats now protected from tidal flooding by flood embankments and sea walls. The Environment Agency is conducting a study to determine the current and future requirements of the island's main river system to ensure an adequate level of protection from flooding for the people of the area. With this consultiation document, by consulting stakeholders, potential adverse environmental impacts of future works on Canvey Island can be identified and either mitigated or avoided. This is also an opportunity to identify potential positive impacts or enhancements that might be included in the project. Stakeholders can assist this process by making the Environment Agency aware of any environmental issues you see as pertinent, giving your views on the possible options outlined and by identifying and providing relevant background information.
