Cumbria County Council are currently consulting on their Coastal Strategy and they want to know what you think! Everyone living, visiting or working on or near the coast is invited to take part in determining how their local coastline should be managed. Comments and feedback are welcomed but need to be in by the 14th December 2018. More information can be found below.
The Cumbria Coastal Strategy (CCS) will be a plan to evaluate and manage the risks related to coastal flooding and erosion along the Cumbrian coastline on a long-term scale. Following on from the North West Shoreline Management Plan (SMP2) which covered the coastline from the Great Orme in North Wales to the Scottish Border, the need for a more focused Strategy was identified. The CCS will assess the existing condition of land and flood defences along the coastline and build on the existing proposals set out in the SMP2, identifying potential future interventions required. So, if you love, work or visit the coast, or just have some opinions on how you’d like to see it managed in the future then now’s your chance to speak up and let your thoughts be heard. You can feedback online or by post, check the website for details.
