Shoreline Management Plans

Shoreline Management Plans

The SMP is a non-statutory, high level policy document for coastal flood and erosion risk management planning that was formally adopted in August 2016. It provides a large scale assessment of the risks associated with coastal processes, and helps to reduce these risks to people and the environment by identifying the most sustainable policies for managing flood and coastal erosion risks in the short-term (0-20 years), medium-term (20-50 years) and long-term (50-100 years).
