Council chiefs are holding an emergency meeting this morning to organise their plan of action for the north Norfolk coast as the clean up from Thursday’s floods continues.
Members of North Norfolk District Council’s cabinet are getting round the table with officers and the authority’s corporate directors, to thrash out their “coordinated approach” to deal with the devastation left by the storm.
Angie Fitch-Tillet, cabinet member for coastal management, said members would be getting up to speed on work so far, the extent of the damage and details of the brief survey that has been carried out over the last few days.
“It’s just putting everything together and having a coordinated approach to what happens next,” she added.
“Obviously we have got teams doing the emergency repairs or clear up if you like right now. We pressed the go button with them as soon as the third high tide had passed, and now we just need to take stock of where we are.”
Mrs Fitch-Tillett also urged members of the public to heed warnings to stay away from cordoned off areas, which have been roped off for safety while assessments and emergency repairs are carried out.
