The Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership are working as part of Havant Borough Council, to carry out an economic footprint study for Hayling Island. Working with professional consultants AECOM, they have developed a short questionnaire to help understand both the direct and indirect impacts of coastal flooding and erosion on Hayling Island and the wider borough economy.
The majority of Hayling Island is low-lying, with a history of serious flood incidents. There are a variety of different coastal defences around the island, of which a high proportion have a low residual life without further maintenance, varying in condition from ‘poor to good’.
The outputs of this survey will be used to identify the wider economic benefits to help justify potential future Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management measures on the island.
We are particularly interested to hear from you if you are a resident, business owner or visitor to the island.
Please follow the link https://wh.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=155290705294
to complete the short survey. The survey will be live until Monday 15th April 2019. [Contact HIRA or ESCP directly if link doesn't work.]
