Title: Suffolk estuarine strategies : Blyth estuary strategy : options consultation document
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document is the Options Consultation Document of the Blyth estuary strategy report, one of three reports of the Suffolk Estuarine Strategies. There are several areas in Suffolk that are becoming susceptible to flooding. The Agency commissioned the development of long-term strategies to manage the flood defences for three of the Suffolk Estuaries: the Blyth, the Aide and Ore and the Deben. This project is known as the "Suffolk Estuarine Strategies". Flood management strategies are being developed over the next 2 years on a river-by-river basis starting with the Blyth estuary, followed by the Aide and Ore estuary, then the Deben estuary. This consultation document sets out the proposed approach to the strategy in the Aide and Ore estuary. Additionally, certain areas on the Blyth estuary have been identified which would benefit from prompt action through the development of flood management works. These areas encompass the Tinkers and Reydon Marshes and the length of river between Blyford Bridge and Blythburgh Bridge. This consultation document is the first stage of the option assessment process and follows on from 'The Blyth Estuary Strategy: Introduction to the Strategy - June 2003 'and comments gratefully received from the consultees during this period. It provides interested parties with the opportunity to express their opinions and concerns about the proposed options at an early stage of the project.
