East Lindsey - Demograhics & Flood Risk

east lindsey

Requirement

The Lincolnshire Coastal Study addressed coastal flooding issues and proposed a set of Principles and Options for spatial development in East Lindsey and its neighbouring areas of Boston and South Holland.

The Coastal Study included a strategic aim to provide only sufficient housing in the zones of the highest flood ‘risk’, and to hold the population ‘broadly stable’ over the plan period.

Within this context, East Lindsey requested a range of demographic evidence to support its Strategic Housing Market Assessment. This evidence was required to inform the planning process for the district in total, whilst providing demographic intelligence on those geographical areas classified by the Environment Agency as having the highest flood risk.
