Find out how coastal erosion is being managed in your area.
Before you start
You can search the map for your area. It shows what is being done to manage coastal erosion by 2030, 2060, or 2110, for example by building defences.
It shows 4 different types of managing coastal erosion:
- no active intervention - no current plans to build any defences
- hold the existing defence line - maintaining current defences
- managed realignment - allowing the shoreline to move to an agreed position
- advance the line - new defences planned extending the land area out to sea
You can also check the shoreline management plans for more information on how coasts are managed.
