As ridiculous ideas go this is daft-
the Wash is an internationally important wetland- it's theoretically protected by international law ( although now we've left the EU they could probably get around that )
-and someone wants to build a giant dam with turbines etc. from Gibraltar Point to Hunstanton:
I wonder if it will cause the whole of the North Norfolk coast to flood - or push tidal flow around into the Thames basin and swamp the Thames barrier?
www.bbc.co.uk/.../uk-england-norfolk-67321119 This was mentioned last year on local news in East Anglia. This article from BBC local news in November 2023.
Also this about the same subject in 2022.

Maybe with the General Election most likely in 2024. The latest the general election has to be called is by January 2025. Members of this forum should think carefully who they should vote for in the General Election under 12 months away!
I'm all for sensible environmental projects, but it seems greed overtakes lessons to be learned.
One lesson that doesn't seem to be learned is, there is always a trade off with any project, and that includes environmental/green projects, and probably more so. HS2 is a classic, with the loss of habitats.
