Catchment to Coast is a flood and coastal erosion resilience project aiming to build water resilience in the community (led by Southend-on-Sea City Council and Thurrock Council). With the help of the community, they plan to implement measures over the next 3 years such as leaky dams at Belfairs Woods, water storage and re-use facilities in local allotments and extend the saltmarsh on Two Tree Island.
