Douglas joins APPG on Coastal Erosion


Local MP, Douglas Carswell, will be joining an All Party Parliamentary Group on Coastal Erosion, which he is helping to set up in Westminster.


“Coastal erosion is a significant problem in my constituency, including in Jaywick and Walton on the Naze. I think this group is very important as it will allow MP’s with similar problems in their constituencies to discuss how erosion is affecting constituents and how this problem can be combated.”


“Some of the major causes for concern in my constituency are the erosion of the sea wall at the Naze, and coastal erosion in Jaywick. I am aware that the Environment Agency has recently visited the Naze site with councillors from TDC, with the aim of finding a long-term solution to this problem. It is issues like these that I would like to discuss with other MPs to compare the action that has been taken with other constituencies and to see if there is anything else I can be doing to help.”
