Brian Waters steps down
The Manhood Peninsula Partnership has announced that Brian Waters, one of its two project leaders, is to resign after 11 years with the organisation. The part-time Partnership was formed under the chairmanship of Councillor Peter Jones in 2001, with local resident Carolyn Cobbold as the other leader. Carolyn had been the driving force for the partnership formation.
MPP exists to provide a more holistic approach to the problems of the peninsula, cutting across disciplines and authorities, and is funded by local councils and other bodies. Brian, a chartered civil engineer, said “MPP has achieved much, probably culminating in the adoption last year by the main planning authorities of Integrated Coastal Zone Management. I have been involved with the area since I started as junior site engineer on Selsey’s coast protection in 1956. I am 78 this year, so it is time for someone else to have a go!”
In 2008 Brian was awarded the MBE for services to maritime engineering and coastal protection in West Sussex.
