Have your say on how to safeguard Hunstanton cliffs
Archant © 2010
A second drop-in public consultation event about the Hunstanton Coastal Management Plan is being held on Monday, April 9.
A plan is being developed to safeguard the town’s cliffs and sea defences from erosion.
A consultants’ report says: “Ongoing erosion of recent years has claimed a significant amount of public space previously present adjacent to Cliff Parade, including a cliff top footpath and a significant area of land previously associated with the lighthouse, which previously included a larger plan area and further buildings on the seaward side of the existing building.”
A number of options have been drawn up, ranging from doing nothing to installing netting at the base of the cliffs to capture falling rocks to create a barrier. Another suggestion is to build a rock sill at the base of the cliffs.
The consultation event is being held on Monday, April 9 (2 - 5pm) at Hunstanton Town Hall, on The Green.
