Policy CC03 – Coastal Development We support this policy but would suggest a slight rewording to clarify the requirement for an FRA within 40m of the coast regardless if the development is within FZ2 or 3 or not. This is to ensure development will not be affected by coastal erosion and/ or the impacts of wave overtopping. Please be aware that the Environment Agency has recently undertaken new modelling for the North and East Kent Coast and this can now be made available to update the SFRA and inform the LP. All planning decisions should be based on the best and latest information available. The Flood Zones should be updated to reflect the new modelling in November.
