The event is asking for feedback for the Seaton Beach Management Plan, which East Devon District Councik is now progressing with.

A drop-in session has been organised to allow people to help shape the future of Seaton’s beach and seafront.

The event, fronted by East Devon District Council (EDDC), is asking for feedback for the Seaton Beach Management Plan (SBMP), which the council is now progressing with.

As part of the process, the council is holding a drop-in session tomorrow (Thursday)from 3pm to 6pm at Seaton Town Council’s Marshlands Centre, where the public can learn more about the SBMP and express any concerns they may have over its future management.

Coastal and flooding experts from CH2M, who have been appointed by the council to prepare the SBMP, will be on hand, together with members of the project team from EDDC.

Mark Williams, Axmouth harbour master, said: “The community is a key part of the process, and we’d like as many people as possible to come along to the drop-in session in Seaton and give us their feedback.

“We would like to meet with the community in Seaton and to understand any concerns they may have, as the information provided could be fed into the plan.”

A spokesman for EDDC added: “The council would like to emphasise the importance of the role that public opinion has to play in the SBMP and this information session will give people the opportunity to learn more about the project.

“They will also be able to speak to officers from East Devon and its consultants from CH2M, as well as voicing their opinion. Any feedback given to the council could help improve its understanding of the coast and influence the future of the beach and seafront in Seaton.”

The objective of the SBMP is to plan the management of the beach over the next five years in the context of the longer terms policies for Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management from Axe Harbour to Seaton Hole.

Information from coastal monitoring, East Devon District Council and Environment Agency records will be collated, as well as information from local people on how the beach and coast has changed.

For those who can’t go to the session, feedback can be left via EDDC’s website.
