"The piling works are progressing well at the Sailing Club and towards the fort.

"Rock deliveries to form the new rock revetment began on 5 March 2018 and will continue over a three week period."

When complete, the flood defence scheme will significantly reduce flood risk to over 2,300 properties in Shoreham and Lancing.
