Why Undertaken
Project Description Summary

A seawall breach opened up in August 2014. Following consultations, evidence suggests that the creation of additional breaches in the embankment would be the best way to create successful saltmarsh habitat. However, pending further funding and surveys, the current [2016] preferred option is 'no active intervention'.
