Members considered a report which set out the proposed Coastal Asset Review for all of the coastal defences in Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (DCIoS) which will be 100% funded by the Environment Agency.
The Project Manager advised that funding had been confirmed and the project wished to move to the next stage. Gathering further information of inland assets would help to further understand how communities and habitats could be protected.
The Council continues to work in partnership with
the Environment Agency on the development of a capital project to
survey and record all DCIoS coastal
assets that provide a flood and erosion risk management
The Council works with the Environment Agency and
other partner agencies and stakeholders to procure contractors to
carry out the above surveys.
