PEOPLE living on the east bank of the River Adur can find out more about flood defences at a public exhibition.

The drop-in sessions at Ropetackle Arts Centre tomorrow and Thursday are targeted at two specific parts of the £25m Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Scheme.

Further exhibitions over the coming months will target other areas affected in Shoreham and Lancing.

The Environment Agency has organised the exhibitions to explain the plans for reducing flood risk

Spokesman Joe Giacomelli said: “We would like to welcome you to our public exhibition and drop-in session. Members of the project team will be available to answer your questions and talk about the scheme.”

The exhibition covers the Roptackle reach, from Norfolk Bridge to Shoreham Viaduct, and the Tollhouse Bridge reach, from Norfolk Bridge to Coronation Green.

Mr Giacomelli added: “We will be holding a number of events over the next few months to share details about the other areas that the scheme covers. We will be advertising these shortly.”

Visit the Mezzanine Room tomorrow from 4pm to 8pm, or the main foyer on Thursday, 5pm to 8pm.
