Allison Bradnock welcomes investment in coastal defences

Newly elected County Councillor Allison Bradnock has welcomed the news that work has started on strengthening sea defences in the Sea Palling area.

The Environment Agency is using 24,000 tonnes of rock to replace wooden groynes between Sea Palling and Winterton. These will help to keep sand in place on the beaches - the sand prevents waves undermining the sea wall. The work will be completed by February 2016.

"Investment in protecting our coast is vital. The floods in December 2013 showed just what devastation could be caused along the North Norfolk coast." says Alli.

Cap on care costs

As Care Minister I secured a commitment to deliver reform of our unfair care funding system. The reforms would have made sure people didn't have to sell their house in their lifetime to pay for care, and that far more people would get some financial help towards their care. The Tories have now said the reforms will not be introduced next year as planned. Will you sign my petition to demand they honour their commitment?
