Flamborough Head to Gibraltar Point

Shoreline Management Plan

Page 2

February 2010

Policy Unit K Eastern Section Easington Road to Stone Creek

What is a Shoreline Management Plan (SMP)?

The draft SMP is a strategic document that provides an assessment of the risks associated with coastal processes to people and the built, historic and natural environment. The draft Plan establishes a policy framework to help decide the best way to respond to, and sustainably manage coastal flood and erosion in the East Riding of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire over the next 20, 50 and 100 years.

The SMP Area

The draft SMP considers the coastline from Flamborough Head in the East Riding of Yorkshire to Gibraltar Point in Lincolnshire and also includes an area of the outer Humber Estuary within its boundary. This is a highly varied coastline with a range of different land uses and environments characterised by three distinct areas:

Why is the SMP important?

The draft Plan provides short, medium and long term policies and options for the future management of coastal flood and erosion defences along this coastline. It considers the effects of climate change over the corning  years  and offers potential scenarios for dealing with the changing nature of the coastline,  The draft Plan considers the risks to people and the developed, natural and historic environments and provides a sustainable approach to coastal management for the future.

 

Development of the plan

The Flamborough Head to Gibraltar Point draft SMP has been produced on behalf of the Humber Estuary Coastal Authorities  Group (HECAG). Local authorities and organisations with coastal  management  interests and responsibilities  from  Flamborough Head to Gibraltar Point have worked in partnership to shape the draft Plan.

Consultation  documents  and  further  information   can  be  found at the project website (www.hecag-smp2.co.uk), the site also provides the opportunity to leave feedback on the consultation.  The feedback form can also be found here.

Medium Term (2025 to 2055)
Long Term (2055 to 2105)
Hold the Line (P4)
Hold the Line (P4)
Hold the Line (P4)
The overarching policy is to Hold the Line and maintain the standard of flood protection in all 3 epochs. To ensure sustainable flood defences, and meet the requirements of environmental legislation, limited Managed Realignment of defences may occur.  Detailed studies will identify  sites which will be in the order of 60 hectares.  Any Managed Realignment of defences will not adversely effect property or known designated and significant historic environment assets.  This process will be informed by the Humber Flood Risk Management Strategy.
