Avoiding the climate ‘lock-in’ – planning on the coastal edge

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

1. Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs) are not helping to deliver optimum risk management that will be able to cope with future climate change.
2. The use of SMPs by Local Planning Authorities (encouraged by national policy and guidance) is ‘locking in’ this maladaptation further.
3. SMPs should be independently tested before adoption
4. Government planning policy and guidance needs reviewing to help deliver sustainable coastal risk management
5. The Government’s forthcoming policy and the Environment Agency’s strategy need to be more realistic about the challenge facing coastal communities.
