Views sought on coastal management

Posted by East Suffolk Communications Team on 9 July 2019 | Comments

Local people are being asked for their views on how to manage the coastline at Thorpeness.

Following a series of extreme and unforeseen weather conditions in recent years, the defence at Thorpeness coastline has been damaged.

Therefore, a public consultation titled ‘First step in how we manage an important part of the Suffolk Coast’ is being launched by Coastal Partnership East on behalf of East Suffolk Council, to determined how best to manage it going forward.

Cllr David Ritchie, Cabinet Member for Planning and Coastal Management, said:

“Before any decisions are made on the issue, a public consultation will be launched to ask the public for their views. This is a great opportunity for the community to get involved and make a positive impact on the future of the coast at Thorpeness.”

The consultation is running from 31 July until 30 September 2019 with drop-in sessions being held at Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club on Friday 9 August 5.30pm – 8.30pm and Saturday 10 August 10am – 12.30pm.

You can also have your say online by filling out a short questionnaire.

The questionnaire and more information about the consultation will be available online from 31 July 2019.
