UK innovation about coastal inundation “let it flood!”

“…the last time the wall was seriously compromised during winter storms was in 2008. The resultant flooding cost over £5 million ($8.3 million) in damages. The controversial plan? Cut a 100 m channel into the shingle bank and let the ocean reclaim 500 hectares of land, transforming three farms and the RSPB nature reserve into a saltwater marsh. Then behind the newly created inter-tidal zone, about two km inland, build a new seven km curved clay embankment — completely “realign” the coast.”
