PROJECT SUMMARY

ComCoast will deliver operational benefits to flood defence and enhances future implementation of strategies and SMPs. It will also allow the Agency to deliver national targets for bio-diversity and the Habitats Directive. ComCoast has attracted a significant amount of external funding and consequently creates opportunities for both Agency and other UK partners to do innovative work, apply new techniques and learn lessons from other approaches. The additional information gleaned from this project will help coastal agencies promote schemes to the public and stakeholders in terms of wider economic and recreational benefits that can be gained from coastal change.
