Flood Defences

Following several years of analysing the different options  to reduce flood risk, two public consultation events and engagement with both statutory and non statutory stakeholders a long list of options was reduced to a short list and ultimately a preferred scheme was selected to meet the scheme objectives and address comments made at the public exhibitions.

The pages below provide further information on the preferred scheme and examples of how the completed flood defences may look as well as information on some of the options considered and discounted.
