Title: Hayling Island North strategy : consultation document for preferred coastal defence options, September 2005
Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
Hayling Island North is a low-lying residential area. Local people have suffered several floods in recent years. We are reviewing and updating the Hayling Island strategy. Flood risk strategies have already been developed for the south coast of Hayling and Eastokes northern frontage, and the Selsmore to Mengham frontage. Now we need to do the same for the northern coast of the island to provide a long term plan for coastal defences. We are working with Havant Borough Councils Coastal Team and Hampshire County Council. We will also look to involve you and many others in this process. The objectives of the strategy are as follows: Manage the shoreline while protecting the conservation value and status of Chichester and Langstone Harbours; Provide appropriate defences where needed; Provide best value for money; Identify opportunities to improve the environment; Improve and protect the environment. Hayling Island is important for recreation and tourism. The Hayling Billy Coastal Path runs along the western side of the Island. The Mill Rythe Holiday Village has accommodation for 800 people, and Northney Marina provides facilities for boating. The coastal areas are rich in archaeology and the eastern coastal areas are recognised for their beautiful landscapes.
