Plans Drawn Up To Tackle Rising Seas 

The government has drawn up plans that aim to protect Jersey from coastal flooding and erosion over the next century.

Now it is taking its Shoreline Management work around the island, asking us what we think of it

A year long project with climate consultants has been focusing on how to limit the impact of rising sea levels.

The shoreline has been split into different areas of risk to work out where needs maintenance, or new defences, and where should be left with no intervention.

The work needed to protect the island is predicted to be almost £80m, but it's warned the cost of doing nothing would be many times higher.

Over the summer there will be presentations and drop-ins across the island.

People's comments will be used to finalise an action plan.
