The findings of a study, considering options for managing the coastline at Hemsby, were presented to the community on Thursday, July 19, said the Great Yarmouth Borough Council in its latest release. 

In response to this year’s events, Great Yarmouth Borough Council brought forward the high-level study, funded through the Environment Agency, which as its initial phase prioritised analysis of various potential options for Hemsby, setting out the pros and cons.

The study also considers the risks associated with coastal change at Winterton.

Independent experts, Jacobs, were asked by the council to undertake a high-level technical assessment of the complex issues faced, plus exploration of a wide range of possible engineering options for Hemsby, including estimated costs. Each approach has been considered at a high-level for deliverability, fundability and environmental acceptability, said the council.

These valuable findings enable the community, private landowner Geoffrey Watling (Norwich) Ltd, public bodies, local MP, Government departments, and other potential funders and supporters, to engage in well-informed discussions and explore which options can be taken forward.

The full study report, published on Wednesday, July 11, were also be available for people to review at the special drop-in session at Hemsby Village Hall.
