For Immediate Release

The Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk is developing a Coastal Management Plan for the cliffs and sea defences in Hunstanton, and wants input from local residents.

A Coastal Management Plan (CMP) is a plan for managing a coastline at a local level for the purpose of flood and coastal erosion risk management, and Hunstanton's will help to decide the best way to:

• maintain the protection provided by the promenade (and its associated defences)
• reduce the rate of erosion at Hunstanton cliffs

The consultation process has already reduced the long list of options for the plan to a short list of seven options for the cliffs and five management approaches for the promenade and defences. These shortlisted items were presented at a drop-in event in Hunstanton, and the feedback gathered is included in the detailed Options Appraisal Report that has been prepared.

The Options Appraisal Report is available here. Everyone is invited to read the report, and then share their views on it by completing the online survey. The survey is open until 18 May. After it closes, the preferred option for the promenade and the cliffs respectively will be determined and costed.
