Mundesley Coastal Management Scheme

The Mundesley Coastal Management Scheme seeks to:

  • Deliver the Shoreline Management Plan policy for Mundesley over the next 50 years.
  • Stop cliff erosion where possible and continue to slow the rate of losses elsewhere.
  • Manage and maintain the beach.

Earlier in the year, a shortlist of possible coastal management approaches and options was presented to the village. This information booklet is available to download here Options for the Future.

As expected, it is clear that a single type of defence will not work across the whole frontage. There is already a mix of defence types at Mundesley and this will continue to be the case in the future.

The proposed Mundesley Coastal Management Scheme is detailed in the Mundesley proposal and was presented to the public on 4 October 2017 at a public drop-in session at Coronation Hall. A summary report from this event is available to view.

Following this event, any comments will be considered and reported to the Scheme Local Liaison Group. If there is sufficient support and the funding is identified, an Outline Business Case will be finalised and submitted to the Environment Agency in order to seek approval for government funds.

If this is successful, we can progress to complete the detailed designs, seek the necessary consents and permissions and begin to select a contractor to complete the works.
