Suffolk Coastal District Council


The Suffolk Coastal District Council, acting in their capacity as the coast protection authority, hereby give notice under section 5(1) of the above Act that they propose to carry out coast protection work between Landguard and the Town Hall, Felixstowe, on the Suffolk coast, subject to the appropriate grant aid being forthcoming. The work will primarily consist of the removal of derelict groynes, their replacement with approximately 20 rock armour groynes and replacement of beach material. The objective of the work is to restore and stabilise the beach fronting the sea wall and flood defences. These protect amenity land and highway from erosion, and low-lying residential and commercial land, including the Port of Felixstowe, against flooding. The work is planned to commence in 2006. The estimated cost of the work is £5.2 million. Details of the proposed work can be inspected from 28 April 2006 onwards at the Council Offices, Melton Hill, Woodbridge IP12 1AU, or at The Town Hall, Felixstowe IP11 2AG, during normal office hours. Any person may, not later than 26 May 2006, serve a written notice of objection and must be delivered or sent by post, fax or e-mail to the Secretary of State and to the Chief Executive of the Council. Notices to be posted may be addressed to the Secretary of State at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Flood Management Division, Area 3C, Ergon House, Horseferry Road, London SW1P 2AL, fax (020) 7238 6187, e-mail: and to the Chief Executive at Suffolk Coastal District Council, Council Offices, Melton Hill, Woodbridge IP12 1AU, fax 01394 384100, e-mail: (Please note that this replaces the notice advertised on 14 April 2006 which contained an incorrect date.)
