Climate Change Vision and Action Plan for the Lower Ouse Valley
LDA Design worked with communities in Newhaven, Seaford, Lewes and rural areas to raise awareness of climate change and sea level rise and help them to adapt. We created scenarios for long term adaptation including traditional flood defences and more creative solutions such as managed realignment, relocating buildings and infrastructure to higher ground or raising them up on stilts or floating platforms, and resilient farming practices.
Illustrations and case studies were used in a range of consultation activities to help people to understand the different scenarios. The outcomes informed a local climate change vision and action plan. We also designed a climate trail with displays in five popular local destinations.
