Coastal Erosion — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...their local plans. Three schemes are taking place in my constituency. The Lowestoft flood risk management project is at its detailed planning stage and will be completed in 2020-21 at Corton and Kessingland. To promote more cost-effective long-term strategic coastal management the Government need to address three specific issues. First, there needs to be better reporting on schemes from...

Fishing: East Anglia (18 Apr 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...years. Lowestoft was previously the fishing capital of the southern North sea and was the hub of an industry that included many other ports, such as Kings Lynn, Cromer, Sheringham, Yarmouth, Kessingland, Southwold, Aldeburgh, Orford, Felixstowe Ferry, Maldon, Colchester and Southend. East Anglia sits next to one of the richest fishing grounds in Europe, but today little local benefit is...

East Anglian Fishing Fleet (16 Nov 2016)

Peter Aldous: ...A significant industry and way of life grew up all along the coast, focused on such places as King’s Lynn, Wells, Sheringham, Cromer, Winterton, Great Yarmouth, Gorleston, Lowestoft, Pakefield, Kessingland, Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich, Aldeburgh, Orford, Felixstowe and Ipswich. Part of the industry was and still is focused on shellfish such as crabs, shrimps and mussels, while large...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Supplementary Estimates 2013-14 — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Managing Flood Risk (3 Mar 2014)

Peter Aldous: ...that. It is also important to support those who are facing change and uncertainty, even if that is in the long term. Long-term expensive works are required to defend the communities of Corton and Kessingland in my constituency. It is necessary to work with those communities to involve them in finding a permanent solution, even if it is going to be very expensive and some way hence, so that...

Waveney (Coastal Flooding) (18 Dec 2013)

Peter Aldous: ...defences, and infrastructure at the port of Lowestoft was damaged. The doctor’s surgery at Marine parade has had to move and will probably not return from its new location. To the south, at Kessingland, the flood defences around the Anglian Water pumping station that serves the community have been badly eroded. There is an urgent need to produce a new flood defence scheme. Until two...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Green Economy (28 Jun 2012)

Therese Coffey: ..., so that they can use the proceeds from it. We need to develop an element of consensus on wind farms, because once they are in place, as my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney will know with the Kessingland turbines, there are still issues for residents that need to be solved. I shall use part of my contribution to this debate to call on my local district councils and indeed councils...

Lowestoft Train Station (15 May 2012)

Peter Aldous: ...finance, is putting on a new circular bus route, serving the main employment areas and tourist destinations. The bus will stop at the station, as does the 601 service that runs down the coast to Kessingland and Southwold. To ensure that the investment in these services is successful the area around the station needs to be looked at closely to ensure that it is laid out in a way that...

Debate on the Address: Energy and Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (27 May 2010)

Peter Aldous: ...'s make-up is diverse. We have the coastal town of Lowestoft, famous for its fish, its maritime history, its decent, honourable people and its clean beaches. There is the fishing village of Kessingland, and the market towns of Bungay and Beccles, and wide open rural expanses in between. The people up there do at times feel that they have been forgotten down here. It is as if we were at the...

Wind Farms (25 Oct 2004)

Bob Blizzard: .... Global warming and climate change are real threats to people who live by the coast. I am not talking only about the impact that a rise in sea levels would have on places such as Lowestoft, Kessingland and Corton that are actually on the coast. One can also foresee the Waveney and the Hundred rivers becoming huge lakes, with massive flooding penetrating miles and miles inland and...

Coastal Flood Defence (22 Jan 2002)

Bob Blizzard: ...to the ferocity of the sea. Those of us in low-lying East Anglia look with more than a keen interest at predictions of the impact on our region of global warming and rising sea levels. Ironically, Kessingland, one of the lowest-lying stretches of the 20 miles or so of coastline in my constituency, is one of the very few areas where accretion is occurring. Some of the people of Kessingland...

Hatfield Peverel to Witham (Link Road) (12 Nov 1997)

Glenda Jackson: ...were given priority two status, which means that they remained in the programme but priority one schemes had first call on available funds. In November 1995, three schemes—a Blythburgh bypass, a Kessingland to Pleasurewood road and widening of the Chelmsford bypass—were withdrawn from the programme. The remaining six schemes were put into the longer-term programme, as they were judged...

Transport (Waveney) (19 Jun 1997)

Glenda Jackson: .... A comprehensive strategy for effective management and improvement of the whole route will be produced. Waveney has been significantly affected by the removal of the A12 Wrentham bypass and the Kessingland-Pleasurewood schemes. The latter would have produced a completely new A12 route through Lowestoft, and included a third harbour crossing between the Mutford and bascule bridges. With...

Sea Defences (3 Apr 1996)

Mr David Porter: ...of North Suffolk and further south in Suffolk, most of the defences held, just, but it was close. Some of the Norfolk marshes were under salt water, some shingle banks disappeared and land at Kessingland and elsewhere in Waveney was lost. Such problems are not new, by any means. The one-time city of Dunwich, which returned two Members to the House, is now merely a village. When the...

A12 (Waveney) (17 Jan 1996)

Mr John Watts: ...the Member for Waveney (Mr. Porter) on securing the debate. I know from many recent discussions with my hon. Friend of his concern at the lack of progress on work on the A12 in Waveney, and the Kessingland to Pleasurewood improvement and bridge in particular. A combination of sharply rising road construction costs and reduced funds in the public expenditure settlement necessitated a...

Adjournment (Christmas) (19 Dec 1990)

Mr David Porter: ...have stepped in by then to lengthen its Southwold sea wall into an area that is the responsibility of Waveney district council—or will I have to report further losses in future debates, at Kessingland, Pakefield and Corton, along my coastline? There are too many questions, and too many maybes. I am glad that my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House is to respond to the debate,...

Adjournment (Easter and Monday 7 May) (27 Mar 1990)

Mr David Porter: ...particularly as the other half of the harbour is the boundary of his constituency. We cannot go on relying on mild winters and luck. Corton cliffs, Lowestoft north and south beaches, Covehithe and Kessingland—in fact, the whole of the coastline of Waveney—are as much at risk as the rest of Suffolk and all of Norfolk. It is not a problem for the local councils alone to tackle and fund,...

Orders of the Day — Kings's Speech: Debate on the Address (29 Oct 1948)

Mr Edward Evans: .... They impose, and have imposed for a long time, great drains on local authorities some of which are very small. Towns in my constituency such as Lowestoft, Southwold and the rural district of Kessingland have very small resources. The rate demands for sea defences are extremely high. They impose a burden on these local authorities which diverts large sums of money from progressive...
