Members of the public may attend, please let the Hon Sec know

Dear representatives to AOCP  and Advisers

The AOCP quarterly meetings provide a valuable opportunity to hear about and discuss  the river defence plans.

The plans for ensuring the improvement of the Alde and Ore river embankments continue to progress as planned.   Phase 1 of the construction works in the upper estuary are starting this coming spring and the development of the Business Plan to secure permissions and funding for Phase 2 the Lower Estuary continue to progress. The full details were described at the Open Day and meeting on 7 October 2023 at Snape Maltings.  The details are available on the virtual visitor web site that has been created for the Alde and Ore  https;//

The plans  are proceeding on the set time table and  as yet no new issues have emerged requiring explanation or discussion, so that an updating  discussion will add little to what you already know. It is proposed that the meeting pencilled in for Thursday 25 January 2024 is postponed until Thursday 21 March 2024.  

The only immediate business matter  is commenting on a consultation by the Five Estuaries wind farm proposals to create protected breeding sites for Lesser Black Backed Gulls on the Ness and at Chantry. We will be shortly circulating the proposed draft response from the AOCP. We think  that the issue can probably be dealt with by email, but of course if anyone asks for a meeting having seen the draft response this can be arranged.

It is therefore proposed that the next AOCP meeting will be on Thursday 21 March 2024 at 6.30pm, the place will be decided nearer the time.
Best regards

 Tim Beach

 Chairman of the Alde and Ore Community Partnership
