Flood defence plans to be drawn up

First published in News

PLANS to battle coastal flooding in Southampton are being drawn up for a meeting tomorrow.

The Institution of Civil Engineers is organising the event in Basingstoke from 5.30pm to 9.30pm.

In June 2010, Southampton City Council commissioned civil engineering firm URS to undertake a coastal flooding risk management strategy for the city.

It addresses the increasing tidal risk threatening the city over the coming century and recommends a range of options.

Coastal engineer Jon Short is the lead speaker at the meeting.

Don't panic just as in football Portsmouth are much lower, on some flood maps a rise in sea level of 1.5 mts will send most or our fishy friends back to the sea.

That really would be a dream if their vile toilet town was washed out.
