Title: Pagham to East Head coastal defence strategy : summary document
Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Environment Agency and Chichester and Arun District Councils have worked in partnership to produce the Pagham to East Head draft coastal defence strategy. Flooding and erosion are real risks facing people and their property on the coastline between Pagham and East Head. If there were no sea defences today, more than 300 houses and businesses in low lying areas could flood each year. With rising sea levels, this number could rise to more than 2,200 in the next 100 years. If the existing defences were not maintained, erosion could cause almost 1,500 properties to be lost to the sea over the next 100 years. Subject to funding being available, the Agency's recommendations can manage the risk of flooding and erosion to communities and the environment over the next 100 years. This is a draft strategy and no final decisions have been made yet. Your input is important to ensure that the Agency can consider opinions from local people in producing the final strategy.
