Coastal Towns debate

Being a coastal constituency the area has strong links to the sea, a famous former resident being Lord Nelson and during the 18th century there was a thriving herring industry. Caister-on-Sea is home to the only offshore lifeboat in the United Kingdom that operates independently of the RNLI. Standing anywhere along the coast it is difficult to miss the thirty 2-megawatt wind turbines located just over a mile-and-a-half offshore on the Scroby Sandbank, they are well known attraction and can be seen for many miles inland across the flat Norfolk countryside.
