Title: Shoreham Adur tidal walls (West Bank) : consultation document for flood risk management options - March 2006
Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document analyses the technical improvements of flood defences along the west bank of the Adur Esturay at Shoreham-by-Sea. The west bank of the Adur Estuary between the western harbour breakwater and the A27 flyover is the last link in the chain of flood and coastal defence improvement works recommended by the Rivers Arun to Adur Coastal Defence Strategy produced by the Environment Agency, Worthing Borough Council, Adur District Council and Arun District Council in 2000. The Coastal Defence Strategy recommended that the defences along the west bank be improved in phases. Some of the defences are old and in a poor condition. Some of them will last for a number of years, but have a low defence level, so will not protect against large flood events.
