After discussions with Southwold Town Council, Waveney has agreed to put its plans for new enhanced pathways at Ladies Walk on public display for a few weeks.

Following site investigations into the cause of the cliff slippage at Southwold's Ladies Walk, Waveney drew up its proposals and held a consultation meeting last week about the two options it has come up with.

Cllr Sue Allen, ward Member for Southwold said: "Two options have been progressed to an early design stage and each would provide a long-term and sustainable solution for both the cliff and provision of enhanced pathways along the existing line of Ladies Walk.

"We held a well-attended consultation meeting last week, and our officers also met with the Town Council last night, when it was agreed it would be a good idea to put the plans on display for longer so more people can see them and give their views," added Cllr Allen.

The exhibition will be open to the public at Southwold Town Hall daily from now at 10am -12 noon every weekday until March 9, as well as between 7pm - 8pm on Wednesday, February 22.

Although the schemes reflect two different visual approaches, they both utilise pre-fabricated materials, thus requiring less site time and disruption to both users of the amenity and to the cliff face itself, when compared with more traditional methods of construction.  Additionally, both schemes would be of a similar cost to deliver.

If anyone has any comments on the proposals they can fill in the forms at the exhibition or email them to Sue.Bowyer@nps.co.uk by Friday, March 9.
