In the News - Our Fight for Sea Defences for Hemsby

Our ongoing battle to save the Hemsby coastline and ensure the future of people's homes, businesses, and livelihoods has gathered a lot of media attention which we present here.

Without access to the beach, Hemsby will stop being a generator of income for Norfolk which is estimated to be worth around £88 - £90 million per year. If you take that over the lifespan of the proposed Rock Berm then this amounts to over £2 Billion pounds!

According to Coastal Protection East and Great Yarmouth Borough Council, we are not worth enough to save. We beg to differ.
