Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
Heybridge is a settlement close to the town of Maldon, Essex. This document has been produced as part of a study looking at ways of reducing the flood risk to Heybridge. The purpose of this document is to inform you of the progress of the study and invite your comments. An engineering study of the flood risk to Heybridge was commissioned by the Agency in 2001. This gave a better understanding of the mechanism and frequency of flooding and identified a number of properties at risk. The study area for this consultation document includes residential and commercial areas surrounded by agricultural and amenity land. The Blackwater Estuary is a nationally and internationally important site for nature conservation. Significant archaeological remains from late Iron Age and Roman settlements have been discovered in the vicinity of the Elms Farm housing development near Langford Place.
