Coastal Group
 
 

CoastThe New Forest District Council Coastal Group has developed specialist expertise in coastal processes, coastal engineering, beach and cliff monitoring, hydrographic surveying, saltmarsh management, hydrodynamic and sediment transport modelling, and GIS, in order to improve decision making, understand the implications associated with management of the coast and to provide and maintain coastal defences in a cost-effective and environmentally acceptable way.

The Coastal Group are involved in a wide range of coastal management initiatives and research programmes in partnership with a number of national and regional organisations, such as Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Environment Agency, English Nature, Hampshire County Council and Parish and Town Councils, with representatives on a number of Coastal Groups such as SCOPAC, Solent Forum, CoastNet and the Institute of Civil Engineers.

The South East Strategic Regional Monitoring Programme is coordinated by NFDC Coastal Group on behalf of 31 local authorities and the Environment Agency. The Channel Coastal Observatory has been established within the Southampton Oceanography Centre to undertake and coordinate the collection, management and dissemination of the coastal data.
