Island coastal studies planned

The Isle of Wight Council is to undertake two studies to understand the future coastal erosion and coastal flood defence needs of Sandown Bay and Ventnor.

The first phase of the studies is comprising information-gathering in relation to the physical and natural environments, including coastal processes, economic data and an assessment of the condition of existing defences.

The Sandown Bay study will focus on the coastal defences which prevent coastal erosion and tidal flooding, covering the coastal area from Yaverland to Shanklin.

The second study will focus on the coastal area of Ventnor, from Monks Bay to Steephill Cove.
