Tidal Defences Business Breakfast

Event Details

Great Yarmouth Town Hall
Friday 7th April 2017 07:30-09:30am

Businesses across the Great Yarmouth borough are invited to an important businesses breakfast, on Friday, April 7, about the efforts to refurbish Great Yarmouth’s vital tidal defences.

The tidal defences along the River Yare are central to business operations: they are key to reducing the flood risk to valuable business bases, stock and equipment, in addition to the homes of thousands of staff and customers, and to the highways and other infrastructure that keep everything running.

The defences are also an important factor in attracting and sustaining business investment and jobs in key industries that are essential to the prosperity of the local, regional and national economies. Investment in the defences enables Great Yarmouth to realise its full economic potential and unlock huge opportunities for businesses.

Everyone benefits from Great Yarmouth’s tidal defences, which is why businesses have formed the Tidal Defences Business Partnership: a group of businesses, of various sizes, sectors and locations, which is working closely with Great Yarmouth Borough Council and the Environment Agency to help move the refurbishment works forward as quickly as possible.

All businesses are invited a free business breakfast, kindly sponsored by Norse, where you can:

  • Find out more about this vital refurbishment scheme
  • Discover the benefits and opportunities for your business
  • Tell the Environment Agency about your own aspirations
  • Explore ways you can show support
  • Get free advice to improve your flood resilience

This important business breakfast will take place at the Town Hall, on Friday, April 7, from 7.30am to 9.30am. To confirm attendance, please email Bernard Harris via bernard.harris@great-yarmouth.gov.uk
