With coastal erosion threatening our seaside communities, natural habitats and Britain’s future development opportunities, coastal defence is now high on the agenda. How sustainable are the UK’s defence systems and how will the new Shoreline Management Plans ensure future protection? What will the impact of sea level rise be on coastal policy?

There is certainly a strong need for an holistic, joined-up, and integrated approach to deal with the problems of coastal erosion and flooding, and a renewed effort is needed to identify sustainable and deliverable solutions to manage risk. Coastal engineers, contractors and consultants need to develop a best practice approach to achieving a more sustainable coastline.

The New Civil Engineer’s forthcoming Coastal Defence and Shoreline Management Plans conference is an unmissable opportunity to receive an update on current and proposed policy. Discussions and presentations will tackle the various issues surrounding the 2nd Shoreline Management Plans and other key topics. This is the ideal chance to probe policy-makers and industry leaders to discover new ways of rising to the challenges involved in the effective management of Britain’s coastlines.

Gain insight on the following critical topics:

Industry update on coastal defence policy
The appropriate response to climate change and sea level rise
The new shoreline management plans
Strategic look at managed re-alignment
Understanding investment criteria and priority scoring
Changing responsibilities within coastline management
New technologies for monitoring coastal zones
