Coastal Erosion Maps

Two pilot maps showing coastal erosion for Northumberland and North Tyneside and the South Downs, have been published by the Environment Agency. The maps were developed in conjunction with local councils and provide information for the public on how coastal erosion could affect where they live over the next 20 years. The maps also show how the coast is being managed and any defences that are in place. The information is freely available from the Environment Agency, who is also gathering feedback about how to improve information in the maps themselves.
