Langstone Coastal Defence Scheme

Latest News  

November 2020

On the 28th October 2020, Havant Borough Council’s Cabinet approved the outline design and recommended route alignment options, providing delegated authority for the appointment of a professional designer for the detailed design stage of the Langstone Scheme. 

Coastal Partners are now working towards appointing a Consultant to take forward the work on this project into the next stage of detailed design, which is due to commence in early 2021. 

The project team would like to share a video update that has been prepared for the community and others with an interest in the project. This presentation outlines the progress made to date and looks forward to the next stage of design and what to expect in the future. 


Topographic Surveying – weeks commencing 30th November and 7th December 2020

We are due to undertake a full topographic  survey of the Langstone frontage to inform the next stage of detailed design. This is scheduled for weeks commencing 30th November and 7th December (weekdays only). 

Our Geomatics Team will be present on site, collecting information about the existing topography. This survey data will be used to inform how the proposed defences will be designed and could be constructed. The Team will be practicing social distancing to enable them to carry out the work safely, so if you do see the surveyors working,  please do maintain the social distancing requirements.
