retired professional photographer, Ron McMillan.
12 Nov - Update from Ian
Thomas, Project Manager Pevensey Coastal Defence Ltd. After
the two storms last week, it was inevitable that we would have to
restart recycling this week. With two weeks until the next spring
tide there should be sufficient time to ensure the beach is
adequately reinstated. At this time is not possible to say where
and when we will be working in different areas. As much anything we
need to determine where shingle is available to be recycled back to
eroded areas before we can plan ahead.
11 Nov - Some better news
on policing and a survey on the police precept. From
"Sussex Police have started the biggest intake of new police
officers for over a decade. This has been made possible by the
increase in police precept of an average £12 for a band D property,
and the PCC releasing £17 million from reserves. It means that over
the next four years, Sussex will have 200 more police officers on
the front line than it does today. [But remember that since
2014 the Government has slashed 644 Sussex police officers posts].
Although residents are pleased to hear that local policing will
be strengthened by these 200 extra officers, they are already
indicating that they would like even more. That is why the PCC has
opened a survey on her website to gauge potential support for
raising more funding locally if the Government lifts the current cap
on the police precept."
You can visit the PCC’s website
www.sussex-pcc.gov.uk where you can find a link to the survey in
the Police Funding 2018 section.
