Protecting Hunstanton from flooding and its cliffs from erosion are the topics of a public consultation starting soon.

Local residents can have their say on West Norfolk Council’s Coastal Management Plan during two drop-in sessions to be held at Hunstanton Town Hall in February and April.

The borough council, along with more than 20 other organisations, is preparing the plan between now and June.

It wants residents to help decide the best way to maintain the protection provided by the promenade and its associated defences, and to reduce cliff erosion.

The drop-in sessions will be on Tuesday February 27 and Monday April 9, from 2pm to 5pm on both days.

Details of the plan can be found online at west-norfolk.gov.uk

It will be funded by £20,000 from the council and £60,000 from the government.
