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.
