33. Western Solent Coastal Defence Strategy

This Strategy Study, extending from Calshot Spit to Hurst Spit, commenced in 2005 and is being led by the New Forest District Council on behalf of Hampshire County Council.   

The study involved extensive national and local level discussions on the complex environmental legislation requirements and private landownership issues which were subsequently resolved in the North Solent SMP. Following discussions with partners, the strategic Western Solent Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Study is expected to be concluded in 2012/13.
