The Coastal Concern Action Group was formed in 1998 to fight for renewal of Happisburgh’s failing sea defences. Since then problems experienced by Happisburgh are being experienced at more and more locations around this country. CCAG gained national and international recognition for its work campaigning for proper coastal governance and social justice. It has been contacted by communities from as far afield as Cleveland and Yorkshire in the north to Kent and Hampshire along the south coast.
As part of a £3 million funded Coastal Change Pathfinder Programme. between 2010 and 2012 North Norfolk District Council carried out several projects at Happisburgh to help community adapts to the impacts of coastal erosion.
