Hemsby and coastal erosion - frequently asked questions
I have heard that Anglian Water might be able to pay for defences in Hemsby because it has pipes and assets in the area which need to be protected from erosion. What is happening?
Anglian Water has significant limitations on what it can fund and is over-subscribed with partner projects for any funding that is available.
Anglian Water has advised that the pipe in Hemsby close to The Marrams is not at immediate risk, but it continues to keep a close eye on the erosion in the area and its operational teams will intervene if any of its assets are impacted. Anglian Water would work to achieve the most effective and lowest cost intervention to protect its assets, such as diverting the sewer.
It is important to note that any available funding from Anglian Water would not pay for the whole scheme and any money it did offer would need to be match funded.
