And yet they still intend to build houses on this flood plain! putting life and property at risk for what ? greed ? ignorance ? money money? inconceivable to residents and visitors alike

Victorian Sea defenses that are to be seen in the popular local history books show well kept sea defenses when Felixstowe was managed properly by it's council Old photographs show how this was done .

According the article the £5M is needed to be spent to protect Felixstowe from flooding - and to stop the vulnerable southern area of the town from being overwhelmed by the sea. urgent action is needed to replace decaying sea defenses. Hundreds of homes businesses sea front gardens amusements and even the port (Britain's biggest container terminal) will be at risk if the defenses fail.

What was left of the Felixstowe breakwaters have been piled up as "defense" against the coming winter storms and residents know that these will all be scattered by the power of the sea during the winter months
