Waveney District Council and their operational partners Waveney Norse are considering the closure of parks, footpaths and promenades as the threat of flooding escalates. Closures under consideration include:
- Nicholas Everitt Park and the Mutford Lock footpath in Oulton Broad
- Beccles Quay and Fen Park
- Lowestoft beach promenade
In addition, signage will be placed in various locations, such as Southwold Harbour, warning people to keep their distance from areas which may be susceptible to flooding.
"We must take every precaution to ensure public safety. This weather event is not a show for people to watch and enjoy, it is a serious situation which needs to be managed very carefully and the wellbeing of our communities is a top priority."
Families left homeless in Norfolk after last week's tidal surge have described how community support has helped them through the ordeal.
The Suffolk Resilience Forum has formally called an end to the major incident that was declared in response to the tidal surge.
