Title

Other Seafronts (Put us to Shame)

Description

Torbay Council intends to build a seawall along the entire length of Preston and Paignton seafronts. Consultation and outreach to the community has been minimal.

This is too important a matter, impacting tourists and locals alike, for the next fifty-plus years.

We want to see proper consultation AND engagement that covers climate change, sea defences, and flooding.

As of 14 May 2021 Torbay Council has 'paused' its planning application in order to do some consultation.

Rossall Sea Defences at Fleetwood

Info

Not so much a plot than good planning and execution.

This is Fleetwood in Lancashire. The flood defences are so much more than just a wall. They look impressive... but imagine how much more impressive they would look on a sunny day :)
