The Pagham to East Head Coastal Defence Strategy has been produced by the Environment Agency in partnership with Chichester and Arun District Councils. This submission seeks approval for a 100 year strategy to manage coastal flooding and erosion risks in this area.
The Strategy area is the coastline of the peninsula south of Chichester, between Pagham and West Wittering in West Sussex. The area is split into six management frontages. Land is generally low but many of the area’s properties are on higher ground, resulting in the need to manage the risks from both flooding and erosion. Chichester District Council (CDC) manages four frontages. The Environment Agency manages the Medmerry frontage, with joint responsibility for the Pagham frontage shared with Arun District Council (ADC) and CDC.
The Pagham to East Head Coastal Defence Strategy is available to download on the Environment Agency website.
