New Forest National Park


Our statement about the protected landscapes consultation.

We welcome the publication of the consultation on the Government’s Response to the Landscapes Review, which sets out proposals on how protected landscapes can play a key part in addressing some of society’s most pressing challenges relating to climate, nature and people’s recovery from the pandemic.

Our new Partnership Plan has five objectives which correspond well with the issues and opportunities identified in the Landscapes Review chaired by Julian Glover and the consultation announced today.

The Plan emphasises the importance of working together for our National Park and is for all the statutory bodies and partners caring for the Forest. It was developed after extensive consultation with partners and communities.

We are looking forward to responding to the consultation and to working with partners and communities to ensure our National Park delivers across the important agenda addressed by the proposals.

We are pleased that local delivery is recognised as essential and remains at the fore and that the importance of the distinct identity of landscapes such as the New Forest is acknowledged.

With our colleagues across the protected landscapes we will ensure the work of each landscape adds up to be greater than the sum of our parts to deliver a sustained recovery of the climate, nature and ourselves.

The consultation is now Closed.

Christchurch Bay and Harbour Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) Strategy Consultation


Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council (BCP) and New Forest District Council (NFDC) are working together with the Environment Agency to produce a new Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) Strategy for Christchurch Bay and Harbour. It will guide how the frontage from Hengistbury Head to Hurst Spit, encompassing Christchurch Harbour, may be sustainably managed for the next 100 years. 

Climate change is putting significantly more properties, infrastructure and open spaces at risk from coastal flooding and erosion. Calculations have revealed that if we do nothing over the next 100 years, the coastal frontage will suffer around £1 billion in damages which includes erosion risk to approximately 1,600 properties and coastal flood risk to over 2,200 properties (homes and non-residential buildings). The figures are not designed to alarm but to help us evidence and justify doing something to manage the risks.

During the fourth phase of engagement in Winter 2022, we asked for feedback on the proposed short list for managing the risks. Each of the options were then appraised to assess their economic, technical, environmental and social viability. The process identified the proposed leading options for each of the 18-option development units and these proposals are the focus of this consultation.

The findings from this consultation will help confirm the proposed adaptive options to manage coastal flood and erosion risk across the strategy area. These will be included in the final Strategy for adoption by BCP Council, New Forest District Council and the Environment Agency. You can find all our technical reports and engagement feedback on the FCERM Strategy Hub.
