Abstract:
Every minute of every day the sea is attacking the Anglian coastline. Beaches, sand dunes and cliffs are under the constant threat of erosion from the harsh and aggressive environment of the North Sea which has pounded the coastline for centuries. Although it is not possible to ever stop this erosion, the NRA works hard to manage it, in a cost effective and environmentally sensitive way. Exposed to heavy seas, strong tides and the danger of a surge of water caused by extreme weather conditions, the coast relies on the protection of its sea defences. Without them lives would be at risk and coastal towns, villages and thousands of hectares of low lying land would be flooded, damaged or destroyed.
