Hull Daily Mail: “Pledge to continue coastal work”

EAST YORKS: Two final drop-in sessions on funding for people effected by coastal erosion issues are not the end of the story, according to a leading councillor.

The two events at Skipsea and Aldbrough on Monday, April 16, and Wednesday, April 18, are the last chance for residents to access Government funding under the current Coastal Change Pathfinder initiative.

Councillor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for rural issues and cultural services, said: “Coastal Pathfinder has made a real difference through the practical support and assistance that we have been able to provide for people most at risk to coastal erosion.

“I want to stress that these drop-in sessions do not signal the end of the council’s commitment to communities in the East Riding threatened by the eroding coastline.

“We shall continue to lobby for additional funding to support people living on undefended East Riding coastline that does not meet the Government criteria for sea defences.

“Coastal Pathfinder has demonstrated what can be achieved with relatively small amounts of money, but we need more.”
