Overview

NOTICE is hereby given that Brighton & Hove City Council (“the council”), as Flood and Coast Risk Manager, intend to submit an outline business case (OBC) for the Brighton Marina to the River Adur coastal risk management scheme to the Environment Agency (EA).

The council, in partnership with Shoreham Port Authority (SPA), Adur District Council (Adur DC) and the Environment Agency (EA), have developed a 100 year strategy to improve and maintain the coastal defences for the section of coast line between Brighton Marina and the River Adur.

The strategy would reduce the long term flood and erosion risk, taking account of climate change predictions to sea level rise, for both residential and commercial properties including Shoreham Sewage Pumping Station and Shoreham Power Station.

The council, as project lead, are now looking to implement the first phase of work identified by the strategy, through the submission of the OBC to the EA. The submission will support the application for Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Grant in Aid (FCERM-GiA) funding.

The proposed works includes; a new rock revetment and flood wall repairs at Shoreham Port, a new wave wall at Hove Deep Sea Anglers Club and a new timber groyne field and shingle renourishment at Kings Esplanade.
