How high will the wall be?

How high will the wall be?

The exact height of the walls are yet to be confirmed. There are effectively three walls: Preston, and Paignton (either side of the pier).

The predictions are based on twenty years and fifty years of climate change. It is not clear at this stage whether walls of lower height will be built (and raised later) or the highest built at the outset. Having said that, the schematic drawings (listed below) do show the possibility that the walls could be extended in height.

After 20 years of climate change:

Preston Green: 1.50m

Paignton Green, North of Pier: 1.10m

Paignton Green, South of Pier: 1.00m

50 years of climate change:

Preston Green: 1.80m

Paignton Green, North of Pier: 1.40m

Paignton Green, South of Pier: 1.30m
