A series of virtual public meetings will take place next month to update people on a "once in a generation" scheme to protect hundreds of homes and businesses in a coastal town.
Information on the Lowestoft Flood Risk Management Project will be shared as locals are invited to attend one of the hour-long meetings taking place in May.
The virtual meetings - which include a presentation from the project team and a chance to ask questions - will be held on Tuesday, May 4 at 10am, 1pm and 6pm; Thursday, May 6 at 10am and 6pm and on Monday, May 10 at 10am, 1pm and 6pm.
Project executive Karen Thomas said: “The Lowestoft Flood Risk Management Project is a once in a generation opportunity which, when complete, will provide flood protection to over 1500 homes and businesses and unlock economic development in the town.
“As society begins to reopen and construction begins on the tidal floodwalls, now is the ideal time to find out more about what the project entails and when key milestones will be, as well as ask questions.”
