Seat against the backdrop of a partial eclipse of the sun, Malcolm Kerby, chairman of the Coastal Concern Action Group has some good new year news. The "Cliff Top Enhancement Project" will replace the beach ramp long since lost to the sea, and provide new public toilets and parking for the beach. The focus is to the south-east and the existing properties on the cliff edge will be demolished. There's also up to %40 of the value of the property being offered to the owners. As Malcolm said - previously they only expected 100% of nothing!
Finklegate in Norwich remains closed whilst they investigate the cause of the subsidence which caused the corner of this terrace to crack apart. Even the road is sinking but as yet the problem remains a mystery and the road stays closed to traffic. Meanwhile, at the George White Primary school I've returned (see previous weeks report) to see how the renovation's coming on after the flood. Six schools in Norfolk stayed closed today as a result of burst pipes, heating problems and the big freeze.
