Update on coastal flooding defence improvements at Dungeness B

 

The works began in 2013 and are to upgrade the existing flooding defences to cover more extreme events that are statistically very unlikely to occur in the U.K., ones that might happen only one in every 10,000 years.

The station has just put in a planning application for the final phase of the project; a rock armour wall behind the shingle bank which we hope to be completed by the end of 2014.

The application can be found here:
