Title: Coastal flood risk management strategy Pegwell Bay to Kingsdown : guide for local communities
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
The Environment Agency and Dover District Council are working together to develop a strategy to manage coastal flooding and erosion between Pegwell Bay and the MoD Rifle Range at Oldstairs Bay. The strategy will also look at tidal flooding in the River Stour downstream of Fordwich. The result will be the Pegwell Bay to Kingsdown coastal strategy. This new strategy will develop the flood management policies set out in the Isle of Grain to South Foreland shoreline management plan and the River Stour catchment flood management plan. With the climate changing, sea levels rising and increased frequency and intensity of storms, our existing coastal defences are under increasing threat from the elements. This consultation document sets out the options for the strategy to manage the areas coastal and tidal river defences over the next 100 years. Moreover introduces the key issues needed to address in the strategy and outlines the leading options. It has been prepared as part of the public consultation on the strategy.
