Flood defence plans to be drawn up
5:00am Wednesday 19th September 2012 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.
