Coming Environment Agency Presentations

The Environment Agency invites all those impacted by the catastrophic December North Sea Surge that inflicted such massive erosion and flood damage to so many businesses, homes and wildlife sites along the East Anglian Coastline to a Q & A session at Great Yarmouth Town Hall from 2.30 – 7.00 pm on Friday 31st January. A number of us are planning to arrive at 2.30 pm when the event opens.

Similar sessions are planned for 13th February at Blakeney Village Hall, 18th February at Waldring Field, 19th February at Orford, 20th February at Snape, 21st February at Woodbridge and 24th February at Hollesley.

This should provide us with an opportunity to voice our concern and ask lots of questions on the enforcement of the Shoreline Management Plan e.g. aiding and abetting the loss of and failure to maintain sea defences, despite the fact that when this SMP was circulated for public consultation during 2006 there resulted more than 2,400 responses in opposition with only four in favour.

We can also debate the failure to protect from major surge events, the lack of prior warning given to some, the continuing offshore dredging, the escalating erosion, the lack of provision of sea defences, etc. etc.
