Have Your Say on the Cumbria Coastal Strategy

Cumbria County Council is leading on the production of the Cumbria Coastal Strategy (CCS)

The CCS will be a plan to evaluate and manage the risks related to coastal flooding and erosion along the Cumbrian coastline on a long-term scale. The CCS will assess the existing condition of land and flood defences along the coastline and build on any existing proposals, while identifying if any potential future interventions required.

Everyone living, visiting or working on or near the coast is invited to take part in determining how their local coastline should be managed. We will be holding a series of drop-in events and will also make information available on this website. Dates and venues for the drop-in events are included in the attached briefing note, we would welcome the views of members and the opportunity to share the work to date.

These will be held from 1:00pm to 7:00pm at:

o            Tuesday 20th November, Silloth Library

o             Wednesday 21st November, Whitehaven Library

o             Tuesday 27th November, Millom Library

o             Wednesday 28th November, Barrow-in-Furness Library

o             Thursday 29th November, Grange-over-Sands Library

If you would like printed copies of the larger documents, Community Development Team will print this on request, but bound copies will be available at the drop-in events for the public to view.
