Severn Beach area

Current status

The new precast flood defence walls and other works to the north of Severn Beach are complete. We have also made excellent progress on the installation of precast concrete flood defence walls to the south of Severn Beach and have reopened sections of footpath to the public.Further south near Chittening, we have constructed sheet-piled wall flood defences which have a dual purpose. Not only will they help provide protection from flooding, but built-in shelves will provide habitats for an array of plant life, all part of our commitment to enhance local ecology and biodiversity as well as building new flood defences.

Outcome

The works will reduce the risk to homes and businesses around Severn Beach from flooding.
