Title: Lincolnshire Shoreline Management Plan : Stage 1 - summary
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
A Shoreline Management Plan is a document which sets out a strategy for coastal defence for a specified length of coast. The strategy takes into account the natural coastal processes, human influences, land use and other environmental matters. Shoreline Management Plans are in progress or are to be undertaken for the entire coastline of England and Wales. In order to reduce this coastline to manageable lengths it has been divided into eleven "sediment cells". A cell is defined as a length of coastline which is'relatively self-contained as far as the movement of sand or shingle is concerned and where interruption to such movement should not have a significant effect on adjacent sediment cells. In many cases the sediment cells are too large for the production of Shoreline Management Plans and have been divided into "sub-cells". This report is the stage 1 of the Linconshire Shoreline Management Plan. The Lincolnshire coast between Donna Nook and Gibraltar Point is part of sediment cell 2 which extends from Flamborough Head to The Wash. It has been designated sub-cell 2c and is bounded to the north by sub-cell 2b: Immingham to Donna Nook and to the south by sub-cell 2d: Gibraltar Point to Snettisham.
