Thames Estuary 2100: managing flood risk through London and the Thames estuary - TE2100 Plan, consultation document

Source(s):  Environment Agency

The TE2100 Plan is the result of a detailed assessment of the options available to manage flood risk and their economic costs, benefits and environmental impacts. It sets out the strategic direction for managing flood across the estuary, and contains recommendations on what actions the UK Environment Agency and others will need to take in the short (next 25 years), medium (the following 15 years) and long term (to the end of the century). It also identifies sites where intertidal habitat (saltmarsh and mudflat) could be created to replace habitats that are being lost due to rising sea levels.

The plan is based on current guidance on climate change, but is adaptable to changes in predictions for sea level rise and climate change over the century. The finalised TE2100 Plan has been approved by our Board and submitted to Defra for consideration. We have been given the go ahead by Defra to prepare an implementation plan and a business case for the Treasury. This work is due to be finished in March 2012.
