The Southsea Coastal Scheme is a nationally significant Flood and Erosion Risk Management project led by Portsmouth City Council to upgrade the ageing coastal defences along the seafront at Southsea, reducing the risk of flooding to more than 10,000 homes and 700 businesses. The talk will cover the background of the Scheme and provide an overview of the stages and process that are undertaken to deliver a coastal and flood protection scheme of this scale. It will focus on the processes to incorporate climate change predictions into the design, ensuring the Scheme maintains the same standard of protection for its 100-year design life.
