40. What is the required height for the splash defence, and where does it start and finish?

The existing splash defence will need to be raised to 1m above the pedestrian esplanade from the Fort Cafe to the Sailing and Sea Angling Club building.  The defence will then step up to 1.3m above the pedestrian esplanade until it ties into the defences at the Ham. A large element of this last section will be made from demountable defences and/or flood gates to enable the fisherman’s area to have unrestricted use when required and when sea conditions allow.
