As we head into another winter, there are fears about the ongoing erosion of Pakefield cliffs.

For the past two years, the coastline has been badly damaged by the wind and sea with experts saying the erosion rate has exceeded all expectations.

The caravan park has lost some concrete bases and 4 clifftop properties are also at risk.

Now East Suffolk District Council are asking the people of Pakefield about what’s important to be saved, and how best to manage the coastline.

Meanwhile,  with the coast all around us in East Suffolk, the future of it is being discussed, including the career opportunities for local youngsters, in the first ever Norfolk & Suffolk Coast Conference.

Year 10 and 11 students in local schools are being offered the chance to sign up to hear how climate change resilient the local beaches and rivers are.

The conference takes place on Thursday 7th October and you can register your interest to: charlotte.flight@eastsuffolk.gov.uk
