on study into Burnham-On-Sea beach and dunes erosion
Burnham-On-Sea residents are being invited to have their say
about how the risks of coastal flooding and beach erosion could
be better managed.
Sedgemoor District Council, the Environment Agency, Somerset
County Council and the South West Regional Coastal Monitoring
Programme are developing a new 10-year beach and dune management
plan for the coast between Burnham and Brean.
A community drop-in event is being held at Burnham's Princess
Theatre and Arts Centre in Princess Street on Thursday October
13th between 3pm and 7pm when residents will be able to have their
say on the risks.
Organiser Phil Perkins told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The event
will provide residents with information about our project and
what it is aiming to achieve."
"It will also provide residents with an opportunity to give
us information about coastal erosion issues that they feel should
"We are particularly keen to see photos, maps and plans
that illustrate how the coast has changed over the years."
