UK: Mundesley Coast Management Scheme – public drop-in session

News // January 10, 2017

A public drop-in session and exhibition will be held at Coronation Hall in Mundesley on Tuesday 17 January from 2pm to 7.30pm. An outline business case for Mundesley Coast Management Scheme is being developed to help attract funding and gain approval for the work. It is expected that the final scheme will cost between £1 million and £1.5 million pounds.

The public drop-in session will explain what options have been shortlisted for further consideration for the scheme and what the next steps will be.

It is hoped the event will help people understand the need for the scheme, what is and isn’t possible; be aware of how coastal management schemes are funded, enable people to give feedback on the shortlisted options and understand what the next steps are.

People are invited to drop into the event and speak to a member of the North Norfolk District Council coastal management team to find out more about coastal management options for Mundesley.

Cllr Angie Fitch-Tillett, Cabinet Member for Coastal Management at North Norfolk District Council said: “Coastal management is an ongoing process. The Mundesley Scheme has been included in the Environment Agency’s six year programme and this is the next step in the process.

“We spend around £310,000 every year to maintain 21 miles of coastline that’s £14,700 a mile. On top of this defences do require more substantial investment and in order to do this we have put an additional £300,000 of district council funding towards this scheme to help secure further government funds.”

The scheme is in the outline stage and this is an opportunity to find out more about coastal management, what it means for Mundesley and what options are being shortlisted for a proposed scheme.
