West Wight Coastal Strategy

West Wight Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management Strategy

The Isle of Wight Council and the Environment Agency have developed a Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management Strategy, which was published for a period of public consultation from 31 March to 30 June 2016 and a series of public exhibitions were held during this period.

The ‘West Wight Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management Strategy’ recommends the preferred approaches for managing coastal flood and erosion risk for an 84km frontage of the Isle of Wight coast from Freshwater Bay to East Cowes.

Final Strategy

The Final Strategy will be published here in early 2017 following completion of the process of adoption by the Local Authority and national approval.
