The Southampton Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management Strategy is a non-statutory document that was finalised in 2013, with the main focus on long term management of the 22km of stretch of the City’s coastline spanning from Woodmill to Redbridge.

The strategy has the objective of:

  • Managing coastal erosion and flooding through appropriate sustainable measures
  • Incorporating robust solutions using existing defence corridors or features, staying complimentary with the ‘City Vision’
  • Increasing the potential for recreation and tourism
  • Providing a blueprint for future monitoring and programming of maintenance works
  • Increasing the understanding of the shoreline and to focus consultations in a strategic manner
  • Delivering synergistic benefits to the City through consolidating and building upon information gathered within higher level plans
