Flood Alleviation Scheme

Peter Aldous MP for Waveney has called on the Government to ensure work starts next year on the Lowestoft flood alleviation scheme. He raised the matter with Liz Truss, Secretary of State for the Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs on Thursday, which will not only protect the properties that were badly damaged in last December’s storm surge but will also attract new investment and jobs to the town.
Peter commented: 
“This work is very important to the future of Lowestoft. It will provide long term protection to those residents and businesses who were so badly affected by last December’s Storm Surge and will also give proper protection to the area surrounding the port, thereby enabling vital investment to take place which will help bring jobs to the town. Waveney District Council and Suffolk County Council have submitted a scheme to the Secretary of State’s Department. It will be built over a number of years, but it is important that works starts as quickly as possible. I shall continue to campaign for this to happen.”
