Thanks to the heavy winter we've experienced our coastal defences have been even more tested than usual. Worryingly this has resulted in the sea wall at Kingsdown being breached. The damage is extensive and DDC and the Environment Agency are working together to secure emergency funding to repair this asap.
I went down to Oldstairs Bay this morning to inspect the damage for myself. I have been speaking with the EA and Defra and will continue to press for not just remedial works, but action to ensure the wall is made good in the long term.
