Overall, the commentary received seems to largely focus on the area’s social and economic development rather than express concern for the risk of flooding to property. This is likely due to the lack of any significant flood events in the past few decades.
Going forward, to ensure productive community engagement with the project, it will be vital to effectively communicate the flood risk aspect of the project. In addition, it seems people will be greatly unsatisfied if the project is unable to deliver tangible community benefits beyond flood defence, such as seating, more litter bins, and improvements to the coastal path for example.
