Annotation: EA additional title info: Blyth flood risk management
These flood risk management strategies are being developed on an estuary-by-estuary basis starting with the Blyth, followed by the Deben, and the Aide and Ore. The Blyth Estuary Strategy study area extends from the Harbour mouth to the tidal limit upstream at Blyford Bridge at Wenhaston. Sea levels are expected to rise over the next 100 years. Some areas of vulnerable land behind the current flood defences are already lower than the normal high water in the estuary. We need to ensure that the response to changes in the risk of flooding is appropriate and sustainable. The production of a flood risk management strategy will enable us to manage the potential impacts that future change will bring and also allow opportunities to be identified. This consultation document sets out the Preferred Option forthe Blyth Estuary Strategy.
