Second Cliff Survey Sees Further Erosion
Updated: May 2, 2021
As I predicted the erosion rate in areas of Salcombe Cliffs East Beach Sidmouth has seen enhanced rates of erosion.....This has been clearly identified through the second cliff survey that I provided funding for through my Locality budget..... This survey has been conducted 12 months after the initial survey also funded through my locality budget.
It is clear to see that time is of an essence to implement a beach management plan scheme. The Hanger path leading to the new £1.3m Alma Bridge could well be compromised if a scheme is delayed......I have instigated a contingency plan for a further path to be drawn up to the bridge but this will require planning permission and hopefully this can be agreed at the earliest opportunity.
