The Hessle Foreshore Tidal Defence Scheme involves the construction of new permanent tidal defences adjacent to the Humber Estuary between the Humber Bridge and Livingstone Road. The work is needed in this area as Hessle Foreshore is low lying and it suffered significant flooding in the tidal surge of December 2013, with flooding of up to 1m deep affecting 40 homes and 44 business premises.
