Planning for Coastal Change

The South West region is characterised by its diverse and intriguing coastline. However with climate change inevitable, we must plan to protect the natural and built environment. Planning for this change is often difficult, complex, costly and can be emotionally charged. 

In this RTPI South West webinar (the final one in a series of three), we aim to set out ideas, the latest research and practical examples of how to deal with this climate change driven topic.

Today's session includes a presentation on 'Coastal Change Management Areas' by Dr Tim Poate, Senior Research Consultant from the School of Biological and Marine Sciences at the University of Plymouth.

Predicting future shoreline behaviour is a complex and involved process which few local authorities have the in-house capacity to undertake. The National Planning and Policy Framework requirement for coastal authorities to designate Coastal Change Management Areas (CCMAs), where significant shoreline change is expected, means planners need support in defining these regions. We have worked with coastal planners to understand their needs and develop robust scientific methods and approaches to identify potential future coastline position. From these CCMAs can be adopted to improve community resilience.
