Plans for maintaining the future of Dorset's coastline will be addressed next month.

The Environment Agency is launching a public consultation to help manage tidal flood risk an coastal erosion.

Wareham and Swanage are among those costal communities affected.

The draft Poole and Wareham Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy is focused on protecting people, property and industry and the environment from predicted sea levels over the next century.

It sets out recommendations for new, improved or repositioned coastal defences in areas at risk, particularly in the short-term, up to 2030.

Richard Creswell, South West Director of the Environment Agency said, "Rising sea levels and pressures on public spending mean that managing flood risk into the future will become increasingly challenging."

The six week consultation includes a series of public drop-in sessions. In Swanage that will be on 1st March between 1pm and 6pm at All Saints Church Hall. Wareham's will take place at the Corn Exchange on the 8th March also between 1pm and 6pm.
