The government is being asked to provide more money to help people in East Yorkshire at risk of losing their homes to coastal erosion.
Councillors from East Riding of Yorkshire Council are to write to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to ask for help to support those affected.
Under current government guidance places like Skipsea can be left to naturally erode and, as a result, no Whitehall funding has been provided for sea defences.
However, councillors say it would be "unsustainable and inappropriate" for it to maintain defences for all 53 miles of coastline it is responsible for and has appealed for help.
Conservative councillor Jane Evison said she hoped the letter would "raise awareness about the devastating situation of coastal erosion, the effect it has on people, on their lives, the people who live on our Holderness coastline, and the cost to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council of managing those coastal changes".
Defra says local authorities take the lead in managing coastal erosion and it can’t comment on any letter until it has been received.
