Is Decision District Wide
Decision Made

1. That the Resilient Coast Outline Business Case, attached at Appendix A of report ES/1162, be accepted as a basis for a £9.1m programme of innovative coastal adaptation along the East Suffolk and Great Yarmouth coastal frontages. 


2. That it be acknowledged that the Outline Business Case approval by the Environment Agency will release the allocation of funding to East Suffolk Council and the Cabinet’s approval of the Outline Business Case is therefore required by the Environment Agency to release funds. 


3. That the role as lead authority and the financial responsibility and scrutiny of £9.1m, supported by the additional scrutiny of Great Yarmouth Borough Council's Environment Committee, be accepted. 

Reason for Decision

The Council agreeing to lead the project and approve the outline business case will allow the partnership to progress the Resilient Coast Project and attract £8.4M external funding into East Suffolk Council and Great Yarmouth Borough Council for the most at-risk coastal communities and environments.


Alternative Options Considered and Rejected

1. To proceed with the Resilient Coasts Project with Great Yarmouth Borough Council as the Lead authority


2,. To not proceed with the Resilient Coasts Project
