The Bacton netting issue has been North Norfolk District Council's top priority today and yesterday and we appreciate the level of concern it has caused.
Following positive discussions with the RSPB and Natural England today, we have instructed contractors to remove the upper levels of netting on Bacton cliffs. Minimum levels will be retained to assist in progressing with this critical project to protect people’s homes and national infrastructure.
Following this, ongoing discussions will take place between NNDC and the RSPB about the material to be used on the lower section of cliff to allow this to happen.
Please also be aware that these cliffs are not safe to climb on. Please don’t attempt to do this. A team of abseiling professionals will carry out the work in the next 24 hours.
