Coastal management proposal approved by at North Norfolk District Council

A change in the way the north Norfolk coast is managed has been approved by councillors at a meeting of the full council.

A new integrated approach to coastal management will be adopted by North Norfolk District Council - as discussed at tonight's meeting.

Around �65,000 of leftover money from a European Pathfinder coastal help scheme, receipts including the Coastal Erosion Assistance Grant of �60,000 and any income from the Pathfinder replacement housing will be put towards the cost.

This money will be used to fund specific coastal projects and resources - including a coastal issues forum which would involve communities with sea frontages to help to move the scheme forward.

Angie Fitch-Tillett, NNDC cabinet member for the coast, said: 'We need to take a pro-active approach in respect to the coast.'
