Awards are a way to showcase the operation of not only Pevensey Coastal Defence but also the project itself. None of these awards would have been possible without the willingness of all stakeholders to work together constructively for the good of the community and the environment. They also reflect also how the scheme was initially setup by the Environment Agency and the close collaboration that has existed between PCDL and the Agency ever since.

Considerate Constructors Scheme

The site has been a member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme since 2003 and in all has won 15 awards.
In May 2018 the site was awarded its sixth Silver Award, making it the most successful site in the scheme's history. 

Going to just 7% of UK construction sites, these awards recognise efforts made to minimise inconvenience in the immediate neighbourhood and a commitment to raise standards of site management, safety and environmental awareness beyond statutory duties.

As well as four Gold Awards, there have also been five Bronze Awards.
