  • Since they are often extensive areas of flat, fertile, picturesque land, coastal areas are very attractive for a wide range of human activities.

    However, approximately 25% of the English coastline has been heavily developed for housing, industry, agriculture and leisure and is always under attack from both the local weather and the action of the sea, resulting in coastal erosion. This Factsheet will discuss the problems caused by coastal erosion and the techniques used to reduce them.
