Background

We are a group of Local Authorities, the Environment Agency and other organisations who manage the coastline from Great Orme’s Head in Wales to the Scottish Border on the Solway Firth.

What We Do

The Coastal Group works closely with and reports to the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee to contribute coastal expertise and inform flood and coastal erosion risk management investment programmes.

The coastline is a dynamic, ever-changing place that is home to many people and businesses, as well as being important for its variety of environmental and geologic features. As a Group we examine the social, economic and environmental issues that arise on the coastline and seek to find the best policies to deal with those issues.
