Explore the New Coastal Hazards Property Risk Assessment


Join us on the Tuesday 6th October, at 2.30pm, with Geologist Tim Longden to find out how Terrafirma create their market-leading Ground Report.

In this 45-minute session, Geologist Tim Longden will provide an overview of man-made and natural ground hazards, with case studies to illustrate the risk. Together, we will explore what's included in the Terrafirma Ground report and take a detailed look at their new Coastal Hazards update. 

Did you know that in the Wessex area:

  • 2,000 properties at risk from coastal retreat over the next 100 years if there is No Active Intervention at all.
  • There are 900 properties at risk from coastal retreat over the next 50 years if there is No Active Intervention at all. 
  • 2 properties are at risk from coastal retreat over the next 20 years, assuming the current Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs) are implemented during this period.  If these current (20 year) SMPs were abandoned tomorrow, 200 properties would be at risk.

*These are all a lower confidence worst-case scenario.
