Find a Shoreline Management Plan

Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs) identify the most sustainable approach for managing the risk from coastal flooding and erosion over the short (0 to 20 years), medium (20 to 50 years) and long (50 to 100) term.

Local authorities and the Environment Agency have led the development of these plans, working together in regional Coastal Groups.
