Securing Southsea's future

The Southsea Coastal Scheme stretches for 4.5km from Old Portsmouth to Eastney, and will help to reduce the risk to 8,077 homes and 704 businesses from major flood events.

Project Overview

The current defences are coming to the end of their lifespan, which increases the risk of flooding in Southsea. Our aim is to create new defences that embrace everything we all love about the seafront. The work will improve the seafront for future generations and stimulate regeneration, whilst protecting the community and preserving the area's unique heritage.
