Recent Coastal Erosion
In light of the recent erosion at the end of Beach Road, the Parish Council can confirm that Norfolk County Council is responsible for Beach Road, and have Officers in regular attendance inspecting the barriers to encourage people to remain safe. They decide on road closures and the timescale for clearance of any debris. Coastal Partnership East Officers are kindly arranging for warning signs to be erected around the beach area to warn people of the potential dangers. Although the Parish Council does not ‘own’ or ‘manage’ the areas affected by the recent erosion, they work with multiple stakeholders including, individuals and businesses. Changes are unable to take place without planning permission granted from Great Yarmouth Borough Council. Natural England is responsible for both the SSSI and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which includes the coastline and stretches a short way out to sea. A variety of marine and coastal agencies undertake monitoring and research. Council is grateful to local landowners for their contribution to the village and the protection they offer us. The events of the past two years aid to remind us all that the car park and the surrounding infrastructure are assets in managing the influx of visitors throughout the year. Short, medium and long-term plans are required to manage the impacts of coastal erosion on our village. A multi-agency approach will help to address all of these issues as the situation constantly changes. Council welcomes support and input from local residents and visitors.
Your Winterton Parish Councillors will be holding surgeries for local residents to come and meet your local Councillor. This is an opportunity for the community to talk about local matters, projects and to share ideas.
