The coast between Durlston Head, near Swanage and Rame Head near Plymouth, which includes Torbay, is covered by a Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) which is produce by the South Devon and Dorset Coastal Advisory Group Opens in a new window
Management of the coastline rests with a number of organisations, principally local authorities and the Environment Agency Opens in a new window but occasionally principle landowners and coastal industries also have management responsibilities. Those organisations having this role for the coastline between Durlston Head and Rame Head are now beginning to prepare a review of the SMP to guide the management of the coast for the next 100 years. In carrying out this work it is important that the needs, concerns and aspirations of those with an interest in the coast, the stakeholders, are taken into account.
