Event description

Description

Who should attend?

This annual course is aimed at professionals involved in coast and marine planning matters. This year’s course will focus more on coastal issues especially engagement in plans, schemes and projects associated with erosion risk and flood management. The course will be of particular benefit to those with responsibility for the historic environment within local authorities, or those planning projects that might affect heritage assets through coastal engineering programmes.

Why should you join this course?

As a result of this training, delegates will have a better understanding of the how strategic planning systems used for coast protection and food defence include the historic environment as part of decision-making processes. An appreciation will also be developed about the relevant action needed to promote an integrated approach that spans the coastal zone. They will be able to apply this knowledge to evaluate how the historic environment compromises a meaningful component in Shoreline Management Plan making, and will be able to use this to contribute to how policy implementation occurs and projects are designed to deliver responses to identified erosion risk and flood management priorities.
