Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs)
Shoreline management plans (SMP) are large-scale reports, assessing the risks associated with coastal processes. They aim to help reduce coastal erosion and coastal flooding risks to people, property and the historic and natural environment. In doing so, it is an important part of the Government’s strategy for directing pubilc resources to the management of those risks.
