URGENT action needed ~ Marine Conservation Zone at risk!

Letters for using attached: here are 2 pro forma letters to personalise and send to Stephen Lloyd as well as to Thérèse Coffey, Under Secretary of State who will be signing off the third and final MCZ designation. Please write your own versions, print and send to both MPs. I hope Hastings will be using a similar version for their own MP.  Please Click Here to see a map and notes showing the Sussex Marine Sites of Nature Conservation Importance.

Apparently, the possibility of achieving this status for 200 square kilometres of sea between Hastings Pier and Beachy Head is at risk. The last tranche of these is to be discussed in June and what are we doing about this? I am meeting up with Alice Tebb, who is responsible for this in the Marine Conservation Society next Friday 9th March to try to create an action group of some sort.

This group will need to set up a crisis campaign to try to persuade ministers to approve this agreement.

Also, I am hoping that the two councils for Eastbourne and Hastings will sign a motion to send to Thérèse Coffey after their May meetings. Furthermore, I am hoping to ask Stephen Lloyd ~ Eastbourne MP together with Amber Rudd ~ Hastings MP to write to Thérèse Coffey.

Please "like"! and share and comment the video of a dive in this marine Zone: - Video on YouTube Bexhill Mussel Garden
