Flooding is a risk currently facing communities and landowners in the low-lying areas around Swale and the Medway Estuary.

We have developed the Medway Estuary and Swale Strategy (MEASS) to manage the risks from flood and coastal erosion over the next 100 years.

The Strategy will cover the Medway Estuary, Medway Towns to Stoke, Sittingbourne, Conyer, Faversham, and the Isle of Sheppey.

 

 

Why We Are Consulting

We are keen to hear your views on the proposed flood and coastal management options. We want to make sure we have captured all information before finalising the strategy.

We will use the information from the consulation responses to inform our preferred management options and help shape the strategy.
