In brief, Natural England are seeking potential contractors to undertake a strategic review of Chichester Harbour, looking at how the existing public and privately owned assets (sea walls) and coastal management options are impacting the condition of the SSSI. This review should also seek to identify opportunities to remove the barriers to coastal change, as identified in the Condition Review. This will help build the evidence that we need to influence the change of Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) policy and to identify opportunities to restore the site to favourable condition as part of the wider Nature Recovery Network.

This review will use recent studies to identify smaller sites (complementing the larger-scale and longer term managed realignment options being delivered through the Regional Habitat Compensation Programme Regional Habitat Compensation Programme – Coastal Partners) where decommissioning of existing defences, relocation of footpaths and areas of un-defended land could be managed for nature recovery.
