Rivers Arun to Adur

The Environment Agency, Arun District Council, Worthing Borough Council and Adur District Council in partnership have undertaken a review of how to manage the coastline between the River Arun and the River Adur.  The final River Arun to Adur Flood and Erosion Management Strategy sets out the plan to manage flood and erosion risks along this coastline.

The final strategy was approved (April 2010) by the Environment Agency and Arun District, Worthing Borough and Adur District Councils. Through this management strategy, the partnership has identified ways to protect 9,800 properties that are at risk of flooding and erosion over the next 100 years. The plan is to sustain or improve all of the defences between the River Arun and the River Adur, except for a small section of the River Adur east bank where an investigation into the potential to create some new intertidal habitat is required.
