Don’t ignore ‘experts’

EDITOR – Why should Mablethorpe be put at great risk of existing properties being flooded by all the water and sewage from these 180 houses built on a 3.7-metre high mound?

This can’t be right. People have worked all their lives to pay for homes which will be flooded.

All the relevant authorities – Anglian Water, Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board and the Environment Agency – are against this project. Lincolnshire County Council has stated that no more dwellings should be built at the coast, due to the threat of floods from the sea.

Are all these experts to be ignored, just to enable the construction company to make a few millions, and the rest of us be damned?
