Respondent: Environment Agency

Representation Summary:

In terms of flood risk, the Thames Estuary 2100 Plan suggests a policy P4 for your Borough. This means that more action needs to be taken in order to sustain the current level of flood risk into the future, including responding to the potential increases in flood risk posed by urban development, land use change and climate change. This additional action might be in the form of new or improved flood defences along the Southend seafront (where feasible) or through better floodplain management measures. In either case, Planning Obligations represent an important potential funding stream that we are pleased to see included in this document
