Pevensey Bay to Eastbourne Coastal Management Scheme 2022

To help understand the existing flood defences. we will be carrying out ground investing works in the New Year. These investigation works will start on 4 January for approximately 3 weeks. These exploratory investigations take the form of either boring or drilling into the ground to extract samples from the underlying soils. We will use these samples to help inform us about what is in the ground, if the ground is contaminated and water the ground water level is below the surface. Work on each location will take typically between 2-3 days. These investigations are an initial look at below the surface, it is likely that as the project progresses we may need to obtain more data to inform the projects development.

We appreciate this work may be noisy and can be disruptive, so we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

If you would like to find out more about these works then please contact us on 03708 506506
