6. What happens once the Beach Management Plan is completed?
Option S1 has been identified as the preferred option, as it provides the best balance between technical viability, environmental acceptability and economic case, and we have begun work on the outline design and business case to submit to the Environment Agency for approval of Government funding (Flood and Coastal Risk Management Grant in Aid).
The outline design and business case work is a new project, and more information can be found on our website.
At this point, the BMP will become the Beach Management Scheme (BMS) and following approval, detailed design and applications for statutory consents (such as planning permission) will be required, prior to the preferred BMP scheme being tendered and construction starting on site.
