Chiswell Storm Defences

The Storms and Coastal Defences at Chiswell booklet was produced for the residents of Chiswell about the coastal defences at Chiswell.

The booklet was originally produced in April 2015 following the winter storms of 2013/14 and updated in February 2021, following the winter storms of 2020/21. It explains how the coastal defences work, how they help to protect the community, what may happen in future and shares information to help the community to prepare for floods from future storms.

This booklet has been produced by Dorset Coast Forum in partnership with the Environment Agency and Dorset Council. Contributions for the initial booklet were from the Environment Agency, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council, CH2M (formerly Halcrow) and Dorset Coast Forum members.
