The public drop in session and exhibition was 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 helped to explain what options have been shortlisted for further consideration for the scheme and what the next steps will be.
The event explained the need for the scheme, what is and isn’t possible; helped raise awareness of how coastal management schemes are funded and what the next steps are, and enabled people to give feedback on the shortlisted options.
Cllr Angie Fitch-Tillett, Cabinet Member for the Coastal Management and Environmental Services at North Norfolk District Council said: “I would like to thank people for attending in the numbers they did. All the information from the day is now on our website and we will be contacting people shortly to keep them updated.”
“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 the more detailed proposals are being finalised this Spring.
