The Isle of Wight Council and the Environment Agency have developed a Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management Strategy, which has now been published for a three-month period of public consultation. The 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.

We can now confirm two 'roadshow' public consultation events, where members of the public can drop in and view the strategy as well as having their say. Details can be found below.
