Knott End is at risk of flooding from the sea when stormy weather combines with high tides. There are existing defences in the area, but they need to be refurbished.
1. Sea defence work
The Environment Agency is planning to reconstruct existing sea defences and build new ones to reduce the risk of flooding to around 560 local homes and businesses.
The Environment Agency will replace the existing post and panel fence on the Promenade with a structure that is more robust. They will also construct a new footpath next to it.
The Environment Agency will also build a new flood wall at the ferry slipway end of Knott End. Construction is scheduled to begin in April 2014 and last for around 20 weeks.
