Enabling development: FCERM scheme design delivering resilient and sustainable re-generation

Strood Riverside and Civic Centre are two brownfield sites situated on the left bank of the River Medway either side of The Rochester Bridge. Both sites had been identified by Medway Council within their local plan to provide a significant number of residential dwellings within Strood town centre. Focussing a significant new residential development in the town centre provides the Council with an opportunity to regenerate the town centre and grow the local economy.Both sites are at significant risk of tidal flooding as existing flood defences do not offer a suitable level of protection. Flood Risk issues are only set to increase due to sea level rise resulting from climate change and a significant investment in flood defences was required to protect the sites.Following the completion of an options appraisal in 2015 the council has used the SCAPE framework to take forward the design and construction of the flood defences in advance of releasing the sites to potential developers.This paper explores how undertaking the design of the flood defences with the input from masterplanning consultants has sought to maximise the development potential and viability of the sites.<br />
