Shoreline Management Plans (SMP2s)


A Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) is a large-scale report, assessing the risks associated with coastal processes. It aims to help reduce these risks to people, property and the historic and natural environment. The main objective of a SMP is to identify sustainable long-term management policies for the coast.


The South West Coast is covered by four SMP's which can be accessed via the links below:
