Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Scheme
In partnership with Adur District Council and Worthing Council, we are developing proposals for flood defences for both the east and west banks of the River Adur in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex.
The west bankLand protected by the flood defences along the west bank of the Adur estuary (between the A259 and the footbridge) is low-lying. It is at risk of extensive tidal flooding if the existing defences are not improved. We are developing a flood scheme to improve the defences in this area.
The east bank
Improved flood defences on the east bank of the River Adur at Shoreham will provide better protection from tidal flooding to 289 properties. These properties are currently at risk from a 1-in-200 year tidal flood (flooding with a 0.5 per cent chance of happening in any year).
List of options
In 2012, we used feedback from the local community on the initial list of options to help us decide which one to take forward as the preferred option for each reach.
We displayed the preferred option for each reach at public exhibitions in June 2012, where members of the project team were available to answer questions and listen to feedback.
If you have any questions about the scheme, please email us.
