Reporting Storm Damage in Porthleven

Since December, Porthleven has been battered and smashed by 15 storms. Overall, and compared to other places, Porthleven Harbour and sea-defences along the coast have held up – just. However, it will be several months until the full impact will be understood as the more unseen damage will become apparent as things settle down.

Over the weekend, a large hole appeared at the bottom of the sea-defences below the road leading around the institute (clock tower). I reported this on Monday, and I am very pleased to see repair work has started by Cormac.

Yet today, the town clerk has reported to Cornwall Council and me on further damage near Blue-Buoy Steps. This like the other hole will be investigated and where possible repaired.

If anyone comes across any damage to the sea-defences whilst out and about, could they safely take a picture and report this damage to me. That way I can get the area assessed, and get the repairs carried out by the relevant landowner.
