This booklet focuses on the Shoreline Management Plans (SMP) in the Anglian Region and it gives more detail on the Essex Shoreline Management Plan (Sub Cell 3d). SMPs are voluntary and not backed by any legal or statutory requirement. They bring together information on coastal flooding and erosion, coastal processes and human and environmental needs and uses. They also draw on, and take account of, current local and structure plans, produced by the district and borough councils and the county councils, and provide essential feedback at the review stages of such plans. With the prediction of global warming and sea level rise, local and structure plans will increasingly need to take account of strategic coastal defence recommendations from SMPs.
