We are supporting the Environment Agency in their first full review of the Thames Estuary 2100 Plan since it was published in 2012. The 10-Year Review will use the latest evidence and data, expertise and collective knowledge, to revise the recommendations in the current Plan.
The Thames Estuary 2100 Plan was developed to provide strategic direction for managing tidal flood risk in the Thames estuary to the end of the century. It sets out how the Environment Agency, working with partners, will continue to protect 1.25 million people and £200 billion worth of property from tidal flood risk.
“JBA is pleased to be able to provide support and expertise to the EA’s review of such a significant and important plan. The plan review will be crucial to the management of tidal flooding across the Thames estuary to the end of the century”
Marc Pinnell, Managing Director of JBA Consulting
Have your say on the future of the Thames Estuary
The Environment Agency can’t manage flood risk alone. Communities, businesses, and organisations need to work together to plan for the impacts of climate change and rising sea levels in the Thames Estuary.
We want your views on the future of the Thames Estuary and how the Environment Agency can work with our partners and stakeholders to manage rising sea levels, adapt to a changing climate and plan for the future of our riverside, today and into the next century.
The Environment Agency also ran a live webinar on ‘Updating the Thames Estuary 2100 Plan’
