Thanet surface water management plan

Thanet district was identified as an area where a surface water management plan would be beneficial in improving our understanding of local flood risk issues. Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate are the three main urban areas, all located on the coastal boundary of the study area.


The study identified a number of generic and location specific actions to manage the risk of local flooding. The actions ranged from the implementation of maintenance regimes to awareness raising of the risks in the area.
