Contents of the SMP


The new Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) for the Isle of Wight coast has been prepared in 2009 and 2010.

The Final SMP was published in December 2010 and is now available on this website.

 


The SMP is composed of the main report (of 384 pages)
supported by a series of 13 detailed Appendices.

The shoreline management Policies for each section of the coast are presented in a series of Management Area Statements in Chapter 4 of the main report.

For full information, please see the following pages containing the Main Report and the Appendices.

Policy Units: The SMP includes a series of statements presenting the policies and implications for individual locations (Policy Units). Policy Units are simply lengths of shoreline for which a separate shoreline management policy applies (see the page about the SMP). Three epochs (or periods of time) are defined in the SMP: 0-20, 20-50, and 50-100 years from the present.


The content of the SMP follows guidelines set out by Defra, the national government department responsible for flood and coastal erosion risk management.
