I thought you might be interested in a proposed bid by a group in Seaford to have a tidal lagoon built to protect the coast line and generate electricity.
Existing plans are already afoot in Colwyn Bay and Swansea Bay and the Government are looking for places in the south east as well.
We have so far formed a Facebook page and contacted local politicians (including Norman Baker MP) and councillors to get behind our bid.
The FB page is https://www.facebook.com/seafordbaytidallagoon; The Swansea Bay project is http://www.tidallagoonswanseabay.com/film.aspx; The company behind the project is http://www.british-hydro.org/
