The chalk cliffs at Birling Gap are one of the south coast's best known landmarks and a popular place for walkers. On average, these cliffs are eroding by about 75 centimetres each year, but the storms of early 2014 have caused several metres to fall at once.
As sea levels rise and storminess increases the erosion could accelerate and buildings could be lost. That is why we've been planning for the long-term, creating buildings in a modular way (which means they can be taken down and re-built) so that we can stay ahead of the advancing cliff line.
