The Corton village promenade has reopened to the public in time for the Easter season.
The promenade officially reopened today following the completion of essential repair and maintenance works. The promenade is expected to remain open throughout the summer months however should any deterioration occur on the cliff face, a period of closure may become necessary to maintain public safety whilst assessments are carried out.
The extreme southern area of promenade will remain closed due to cliff face instability however this area can now be accessed using the beach, as a result of recent work by Waveney's Coastal Management Team. Tide tables will be placed on all nearby noticeboards to advise the public of safe access timings.
Cllr David Ritchie, Waveney's Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Planning and Coastal Management, said:
"The risk of damage to the promenade increases during the winter and as with previous years, it was necessary to temporarily close the prom to keep residents and visitors safe. Minor maintenance has taken place over the winter and we are delighted to be able to reopen the prom for everyone to enjoy over the Easter period."
The promenade was closed in November 2015 due to concerns over cliff slippage and other winter risks.
