Environment Agency Respond to Flood & Tidal Damage - page 3 of 3

The groynes on Dawlish Warren beach were heavily damaged by the winter storms.

The groynes on Dawlish Warren beach were heavily damaged by the winter storms.

The Agency is looking at how we can further improve the groynes as part of the scheme.

“We want to see our flood defences back up to full working conditions which is why we have provided the Environment Agency with an additional £270 million to fix and maintain them over the next two years.

Minister for the Armed Forces, Mark Francois, said “Military personnel have played a vital role in flood relief efforts alongside counterparts from local authorities, emergency services and other Government departments.

“We are proud to be able to make a contribution and will remain on hand to provide assistance where necessary.

“Priority repairs have been completed in Weymouth, where sea defences were washed away by stormy seas during January and February, at Greatham Creek in Teeside, where flood waters ripped a fifty metre breach in the sea defence embankment, and at beaches right along the Lincolnshire coast, dune systems are being repaired to restore protection to over 20,000 properties.

In Kent, the River Denge frontage near Camber was severely affected by the storms.

Throughout the winter, Environment Agency staff carried out emergency works to shore up the defences and reduce the risk of flooding to thousands of homes across Romney Marsh. In total more than 40,000 tonnes of shingle was returned along this stretch of the coastline.

Further along the Kent coastline sea defences at Hythe Ranges were breached. The Environment Agency has worked closely with the Ministry of Defence and contractors to stabilise the beach and repair the damage.

This work has reduced the risk of flooding to 68 mobile homes, 21 residential properties and the A259.
