The policy focuses on the Retail Core, Sea Front and the Gateway.

NSC has commissioned Royal Haskoning (RH) to undertake further work on the Level 2 SFRA to assess the flood risk for this part of WSM. An important task is assessing the tidal risks in respect of the new defences when considering the new climate change figures. This work will determine the sequential test/approach, the development uses permitted under PPS25, mitigation measures and inform FRA's. NSC needs to be aware of the implications this flood risk evidence may potentially have on its proposals.
