Whitesands project - alternative schemes

The concept of providing a flood defence scheme based around an earthed embankment, and now refined to a raised walkway, was endorsed by the Charrette process and Whitesands Masterplan.

During the design stages other methods of defence have been considered, costed, and presented to Committee and it was the Council's decision that the scheme to be published in January 2017 provides the optimum solution for flooding on the Whitesands, whilst addressing regeneration and public realm improvements.
