Local residents, concerned by plans to improve the sea wall at Shoebury Common, have contacted this group for assistance. Their fear is that the council will improve the sea wall and then permit the construction of new homes on the floodplain.
With the gradual rise in sea levels (which will accelerate due to climate change) and increasing risk of storms, it is essential that flood defences are improved. However, the construction of new homes at or below sea level would be grossly irresponsible and must be opposed. Residents are advised to study this advice from the Environment Agency: – http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/research/planning/33698.aspx
