Public Consultation on the Final Draft Flood Risk Management Guide Supplementary Planning Document for Shoreham Harbour

We are holding a four week period of public consultation on the Final Draft Flood Risk Management Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for Shoreham Harbour and its accompanying Technical Annex.

What is the Flood Risk Management Guide SPD?

This final draft document sets out proposed guidance for decision-makers, landowners and developers about flood defences and flood mitigation measures at Shoreham Harbour. It has been produced by specialist flood consultants on behalf of the Shoreham Harbour Regeneration Partnership (comprising Adur District Council, Brighton & Hove City Council, West Sussex County Council and the Shoreham Port Authority) and in close collaboration with the Environment Agency.

This guide will sit alongside the Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP) which is currently being produced by the partnership to identify a set of locally supported and sustainable proposals for Shoreham Harbour over a 15 year period.

Why is Managing Flood Risk Important?

Flooding can have significant environmental, social and economic impacts causing damage to property, disruption to community and business activity and in extreme cases, lead to injury and loss of life. Providing comprehensive flood defences will ensure that existing and future residents, businesses, community assets and essential infrastructure (such as the A259 coast road) will be protected.

This guide and accompanying technical report will identify costs and outline designs for flood defences enabling the Partnership to bid for funding to help protect the area. The documents will also ensure that flood defences form part of a high quality public realm environment with improved access to the river and promote improved connections through the development sites.

We want to hear what you think

Consultation on the Final Draft Flood Risk Management Guide SPD was undertaken during September / October 2014 which identified the need for revision and refinement of the document. The SPD has now been updated to reflect comments received and a second period of consultation is taking place to give stakeholders adequate opportunity to comment on the revised content.
