SIDMOUTH: Residents asked to help beach management plan

Thursday, 06 March 2014


Sidmouth’s Beach Management Plan project team is holding a drop-in session at Sidmouth Sailing Club on Thursday, March 6th from 3pm to 7pm.
Members of the public are invited to drop in at any time between 3pm and 6.30pm to learn more about the initiative, to give their views and provide local knowledge and information so the project team is properly informed.
The aims of the EDDC-sponsored project are to make sure Sidmouth’s sea defences are performing as expected and to consider what needs to be done to reduce the rate of erosion at East Beach.
Councillor Andrew Moulding, Chairman of the project steering group, said: “The project team is researching all this but many do not live in Sidmouth so they will not know Sidmouth’s cliffs, beaches, inshore currents, bathemetry and erosion history anything like as well as the people who have lived here for generations or even just a few years.
“So, if you have any information or local knowledge that will help them understand, please let them know at the drop-in session”.
Local residents may be able to help provide videos, photographs, newspaper articles, books or maps that show or describe how the coast looked in the past.
Information about the impact of storm events on beaches, cliffs and coastal defences may also be helpful.
Councillor Moulding added: “At this stage the project team would like to know what you think about the aims of the project and if there are any issues, opportunities or hurdles you think they should take into account.
”Later, at Stage Four of the project, the public will be given the opportunity to comment on a shortlist of options for meeting the aims.”
