The Environment Agency is working with Arun and Chichester District Councils to manage the risks of flooding and erosion in and around Pagham Harbour.
Latest update: January 2013
Representatives from the relevant authorities met on 10 January 2013 and discussed a long list of options to reduce the risk of erosion to Pagham Beach.
Three final shortlist options were presented to the Pagham Harbour and Coastal Advisors Group on 14 January 2013. The options are:
- a rolling programme of beach nourishment and recycling
- building timber breastwork along the worst areas
- placing a rock revetment
Arun District Council, with support from the Environment Agency, is considering the options and getting the necessary consents and approvals.
In the meantime, Arun District Council will continue to recycle the beach to ensure it stays within our trigger levels.
