Climate change and role West Norfolk can play, Lynn News letters
This is according to a long-term flood risk map from the Environment Agency, with higher risks over a more significant area in Norfolk.
West Norfolk’s 52 per cent recycling is twice that of Great Yarmouth which is 26 per cent, so our representation will show how it should be done, as an example of good practice.
It beggars belief that Norfolk County Council ignores us in the west of their county, saying we are ‘ignorant’ here. In the incinerator meetings both a former leader of the council, a Mr Borrett, and Great Yarmouth councillors were disparaging in their comments towards us all. It showed a biased NCC and it’s ignoring our future safety here.
West Norfolk can also provide a solution to making Norfolk a zero carbon energy supplier, as well as the very first green county, with our own local supply of a zero carbon electricity source, the most advanced in the UK.
Combining Wash tidal barrage energy, with a flood defence, as well as a marine road (20 minutes from Skegness to Hunstanton), for 100 years of zero carbon, as well as predictable, green power, a West Norfolk project could be a
major contributor to a climate inquiry. I challenge NCC to be a fairer council and invite us into a debate that will affect us here most. Let us help all of Norfolk.
