THE risk of flooding along the Somerset coastline is 'only going to get worse' if action is not taken, according to an environmental expert.

Weston residents are going to be asked how they think the problem should be solved.

The results of the consultation, being run by the Environment Agency on behalf of the North Devon and Somerset Coastal Authorities Group (NDASCAG), will be used to develop a strategy for managing flooding and erosion.

NDASCAG's chairman Humphrey Temperley, said: "We need to plan now for changes in the future. It is important that local people take part in the consultation. This is their chance to have their say."

NDASCAG is putting together a list of people and organisations who might be interested in being involved with the consultation process. The aim is to compile a list of these stakeholders by the end of January and then send out further details to them of the next stage.

NDASCAG looks after the entire coastal zone for Devon and Somerset. It provides a forum for key groups to both discuss problems and develop shoreline management techniques.
