This report sets out the background and evidence on coastal management practices at Pagham. It also summarises the conclusions of the three main approaches for future management of the Pagham coastline. The funding of the different management practices is not considered in the report.
This report has been produced for the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. This was requested because of accelerated coastal erosion at Pagham Beach, West Sussex.
The next steps are highlighted in the report. These are to be led by Arun District Council and Pagham Parish Council.
