Hemsby and coastal erosion - frequently asked questions

What planning guidance is available for coastal communities in and around Great Yarmouth.

The joint Coastal Adaptation Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), prepared in partnership by East Suffolk Council, Great Yarmouth Borough Council, North Norfolk District Council, the Broads Authority and Coastal Partnership East, supports the implementation of Local Plan policies relating to the coast from Holkham in North Norfolk to Felixstowe in East Suffolk.

The SPD provides detailed guidance for residents, developers, businesses and landowners on the interpretation and implementation of planning policies to support a managed approach to coastal erosion risk to support longer term preparedness and community resilience.

The SPD does not form part of the development plan and does not change planning or shoreline management policies. It does, however, provide guidance on the implementation of coastal planning policies and is a material consideration in the determination of planning applications.

The SPD and relevant supporting documents can be viewed in the Planning section of our website.
