Slapton Line Drop-In Workshop 25th July 3-7 pm Stokenham Village Hall

Do you have any suggestions as to how you think the Slapton Line and the A379 road could be protected from lowering beach levels and storm damage?


If so, the Slapton Line Partnership (SLP) is asking for your ideas as part of a local public consultation to be held in July.


The Partnership, a group of organisations jointly responsible for managing the fragile shingle bar, is working on a ‘Beach Management Plan’ (BMP) which will identify and assess all the potential defence options.


Alan Denbigh, from the Slapton Line Partnership, said: “We would like to hear from people who have ideas and suggestions about maintaining the integrity of the Slapton Line and the A379 road which runs along it.


“Even though we have expert engineers working with us on the project, it’s very important that the views and suggestions of local residents are considered.”


Dan Field, Senior Specialist in Engineering at South Hams District Council, said:  “It may be that people have seen solutions in other parts of the country or even in other parts of the world that they would like to be considered. All ideas will then be reviewed against engineering principles.”


 The public are invited to a drop-in event, where the ideas can be put forward and discussed, on Tuesday 25 July at Stokenham village hall between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
