Hemsby and coastal erosion - frequently asked questions
What planning is taking place to help Hemsby adapt to continued coastal erosion?
Coastal Partnership East (CPE) has recently secured funding through its Resilient Coasts project to deliver innovative options for communities to adapt to coastal erosion.
The Resilient Coasts project is one 25 successful pilot projects chosen for the government's Flood and Coastal Resilience Innovation Programme (FCRIP) which is part of the Government's National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England. See the Flood and Coastal Resilience Innovation Programme website for full information.
CPE is now actively working on the possible opportunities for Hemsby that can be developed through this programme during 2024. These include financial options to help communities adapt to coastal erosion alongside actions to influence national policy change.
CPE and Great Yarmouth Borough Council will be engaging with community members as these options are developed.
