|Description of Project||
Business Case to support an application for Capital grant Aid funding for Beach Recycling Works.
Following the success of the Hythe to Folkestone Coast Protection Scheme; which comprised bi-annual beach recycling to maintain the defences provided by the open managed beach frontage, Shepway District Council required a PAR to be written in order to obtain Capital Grant Aid to enable a 5 year programme of beach maintenance to be secured. A detailed report was prepared by Herrington Consulting, which drew upon a range of numerical modelling techniques, to test a number of future management options.
Parametric beach response model, Wave overtopping, 2D flood propagation modelling, economic analysis
