  • We also aim to produce a practical guide to creating the conditions for coastal community adaptation so that others can follow our methodology
  • Steering group given mandate to undertake a primary assesment of sites and identify and prioritise next phase of work within it’s remit. This report seeks approval to go forward with work to take it to next stage. Other mechanisms for dealing with these assets and golden thread which we’ll mention again and again smp The North Solent Shoreline Management Plan which incorporates this stretch of coastline, is currently being developed. Whilst the draft coastal defence policy options, open for public consultation, are still to be agreed it is likely that for this stretch of coast the policy option will be No Active Intervention (NAI), which has not proved a popular proposal for many sectors of the community.
  • Work compelted: KAWG Coastal Adaptation Strategy Stage one Further work needed at Lepe Country Park to determine the short and long term solutions to maintaining the facilities at the park for the public to enjoy. A summary of the work currently proposed for Lepe as part of the adaptation strategy is outlined as follows: Engage consultants to undertake long term strategy to consider opportunities to improve facilities, partnership working and new income streams (building on SWOT analysis and options appraisal already carried out by HCC) Stakeholder and community engagement Implement - Capital works if agreed and funding found etc (unknown at present) The second and third elements (stakeholder / community engagement and the implementation of capital works) will be progressed as and when resources allow and will be based on the results of the consultants report. If the pathfinder bid is successful, the additional resources will allow for carrying out the additional work on the wider stretch of coastline to ensure a more holistic and comprehensive adaptation plan. The additional resources will also allow for more extensive stakeholder engagement and will allow the work to be delivered more immediately.
  • Over the summer months, with the help of the local community and professionals working in the area, have developed a timeline for the area of coast from Southampton Water to the Beaulieu River. One thing we have learnt for certain is that the coast continually changes, and life, whether human, animal or plant, can always adapt, given the right conditions. So what can we learn from the changes in the past that will help us adapt to the changes we face in the future? Here are some of the events that have occurred along the coastline. 1700s The Great Storm In 1703 a terrible hurricane hit the south coast and raged for five days; it changed much of the landscape, blocking the flow of rivers and creating permanent shingle banks. 8,000 - 15,000 people were killed and 4,000 trees came down in the New Forest alone; for miles inland the grassland was so salt encrusted the cattle were unable to graze.  Stone Point harbour was destroyed and so Lepe harbour became the focus for ship building until 1825 when it silted up. At around the same time, large parks designed to imitate natural landscapes were established by landowners, at Exbury House and gardens, the Cadland Estate and Eaglehurst. Growing industrial activity showed the impact of the Industrial Revolution, in the numerous brickworks and mills that sprung up in the area, and especially the shipbuilding at Buckler’s Hard, driven by expanding Royal Navy activity at Southampton.

    • Objectives
    • To engage the local community in all aspects of coastal change and how it will impact on existing residents, businesses and visitors.
    • Explore the full range of hazards and risks to which coastal communities may be exposed i.e. flooding by the sea, coastal erosion and coastal instability
    • To provide educational and interpretational opportunities that can communicate coastal change and build a high level of understanding within the local community.
    • To raise awareness of long term sea level rise amongst politicians and elected Members

    • CCATCH developed risk profiles to identify key areas and communities to engage with further in the project
    • 1 st PMC groups discussed possible communities for engagement in the project which resulted in 17 possible sites
    • SF wrote up risk profiles for the 17 possible sites/communities and consulted with the local partners
    • 2 nd PMC group further refined the 17 based on criteria which resulted in 7 sites
    • Currently holding further meetings with the partners to explore the sites further
  • Provisional Sites Selected Yarmouth Cowes Beaulieu to Calshot Netley Itchen Gosport East Hayling CCATCH - the Solent Solent Breezes
    • Identification of Stakeholder to help indicate who to involve in local engagement group.
    • Workshop 1 and 2 with CC2150 partners developed some ideas
    • CCATCH PMC 2 started to identify stakeholders for the 7 areas

  • CCATCH - the Solent Case Study – Beaulieu to Calshot Timeline
    • Stories of Change
    “ My first thoughts are of the constant erosion along the coast between Lepe & Calshot. Since we have been coming on a more regular basis over the past 8-9 years we have really noticed how the sea level has risen nearer the cliff edge. “ “ I wasn't here when the coastal footpath existed, and to me it looks like it had been destroyed a very long time ago. I was shocked when I found out that when the March's storm washed it away, the footpath had only just been repaired earlier that winter. I can barely imagine the shingle being up to the height of the boards as there is also less shingle in front of the boards.” CCATCH - the Solent Case Study – Beaulieu to Calshot
    • Work with local schools in creating models to show coastal change
    • Artist commissioned to create a sculpture depicting change on the coast
    • Houses on the Shore activity
    • Markers on the Shore to show future possible changes
      • Educational resources
