This report was produced by the University of Southampton Waste Management Research Group and Energy and Climate Change Group as part of a study for the “Coastal landfill and shoreline management: implications for coastal adaptation infrastructure” project" funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC: NE/N012909/1) as part of the Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Innovation Programme. The report details results from a study on the Spittles Lane landfill located at Lyme Regis in the south of England. The study estimated the long-term impact on the site of coastal processes affected by sea level rise. Spittles Lane is a historic landfill located at the top of a cliff on the Black Ven and Spittles Landslide complex.The shoreline management plan for the coast fronting the landfill site is "no active intervention". On-going erosion of the landslip toe is releasing waste from the landfill onto the foreshore and over time further landslips are almost certain to bring down the remaining parts of Spittle Lane landfill. The report discusses the pollution potential of the waste and options for future management of the landfill.

Abstract

This report was produced by the University of Southampton Waste Management Research Group and Energy and Climate Change Group as part of a study for the “Coastal landfill and shoreline management: implications for coastal adaptation infrastructure” project" funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC: NE/N012909/1) as part of the Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Innovation Programme. The report details results from a study on the Spittles Lane landfill located at Lyme Regis in the south of England. The study estimated the long-term impact on the site of coastal processes affected by sea level rise. Spittles Lane is a historic landfill located at the top of a cliff on the Black Ven and Spittles Landslide complex.The shoreline management plan for the coast fronting the landfill site is "no active intervention". On-going erosion of the landslip toe is releasing waste from the landfill onto the foreshore and over time further landslips are almost certain to bring down the remaining parts of Spittle Lane landfill. The report discusses the pollution potential of the waste and options for future management of the landfill.
