The council continues to help those affected by flooding and to repair damage from the 14 February storm.

If you or your business has been affected, support may be available - visit our flood support scheme pages.

Further information on the central government response and recovery to the floods, including support for communities, businesses and farmers, is available from the Department for Communities and Local Government.

Milford on Sea and Hurst Spit

Following extensive damage to this area of coast, intensive work has been undertaken to make the area safe as well as clearing up and making repairs.

Photos of the damage and clear up at Milford on Sea

The storm resulted in around 50,000 tonnes of shingle being washed away form Hurst Spit - that's around 5000 lorry loads! Parts of the Spit that were nine meters wide had been reduced to less than a meter but repair work is progressing well. Please take caution when visiting the area as there is heavy machinery in operation. Please also take notice of any signs or fenced off areas.
