  • Coastal defences at Wallasea Island (sustainable)
    • Location
      • Low lying  coastal area
      • Formed at a confluence with River Crouch and Roach, Essex
    • They have realigned the northern part of the island by building a new embankment inland and the old sea defences were breached
    • Mudflats and salt marshes were created - help protect sea wall and properties to the south
    • £7.5 million - replaces bird habitats, improves flood defences on island and creates leisure oppertunities. Since 2007 the site has been managed by RSPB
