  • Aims

    The aim of the North East Coastal Monitoring Programme is to provide better understanding on the coastal processes and the locations, rates and mechanisms of shoreline change at key locations between the Scottish Border and Flamborough Head.

    The programme has specifically been designed to address the issues raised and recommendations made in both the Northumberland and North Tyneside Shoreline Management Plan and the River Tyne to Flamborough Head Shoreline Management Plan.

    The intention is that by collecting and analysing coastal monitoring data our understanding of the way in which the coast functions will improve and the resulting information will be used to provide effective and sustainable coastal management decisions into the future.
