Strategies & Plans

Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs)

South East of England Strategy Studies

Medium Term Plan (MTP)

Flood & Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategies (previously termed Coastal Defence Strategies) are produced by the Environment Agency and maritime Local Authorities.

They cover a shorter length of coast than the Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs).  The assessments and research are carried out to a greater level of detail to identify preferred approaches for implementing or reviewing the SMP policies.

The map below shows the Strategy Study areas for the South East of England.
