Over the last few years, I’ve been working with the council and local residents to secure extra Government funding to protect our coastal communities here in North Norfolk.
I’ve met with ministers to discuss vital coast defence work at the Bacton Gas Terminal, and to ensure that neighbouring villages like Bacton, Walcott and Happisburgh also benefit from improved sea defences.
We’ve made some good progress, but there is still a funding gap of around £2 million for the project which is putting these communities at unacceptable risk of flooding.
After the election, I want to keep fighting in Norfolk and in Parliament – challenging ministers to make sure this work is completed so that we have proper protection for these villages.
The Liberal Democrats have also pledged a £2bn flood prevention fund, which would allow the funding gap to be met for the scheme.
So vote to re-elect me on 8th June, to keep a strong voice for our North Norfolk coastal villages in Parliament.
