This information booklet summarises the key findings and recommendations of the River Ouse to Seaford Head Coastal defence strategy. The strategy is a long term plan that establishes how the Environment Agency will manage flood risk on the River Ouse downstream of Lewes and on the coast between Newhaven and Seaford. This strategy recommends that the urban areas of Newhaven and Seaford are defended against flooding to a standard of 1:100. All other areas will have a minimum defence standard of 1:10.
