In the Lynn News (February 21) there was a report that says Dersingham, Ingoldisthorpe, Snettisham and Heacham parish councils have been asked to contribute £100,000 between them towards coast and beach defences.
Hunstanton council was also asked to contribute to this fund and they have already rejected it. To start with, Dersingham and Ingoldisthorpe do not have a coastline or beach as their boundary stops at the Snettisham boundary, whose land goes between Dersingham and Ingoldisthorpe boundary and the sea joining up with Wolferton boundary to the south of the old sea wall near the Wolferton pumping station. This is a ridiculous suggestion. The government should pay for all the sea defence work around the coast of the British Isles. It also says in the same report that £80,000 will be spent on a management plan for the Hunstanton beach and cliffs area. There is nothing wrong with Hunstanton beach of cliffs. This £80,000 would just be a complete waste of taxpayers’ money.
