  • Barton-on-Sea and Bournemouth
    • Management Strategy
      • Drain pipes built into cliff between layers of clay reduces build up of water
      • Rock armour groynes reduce loss of beach. Wide beach reduces coastal erosion
    • Effects and conflicts
      • Increased beach size is good for tourism in Bournemouth.
      • Reduced sediment supply to East, Less beach at Barton.
      • Conflict between council and other groups as defences may not be cost-effective.
    • Reasons for management
      • buildings increase weight on cliffs
      • buildings interfere with drainage
      • prevailing wind- SW wind, hits coast directly
      • waves have long fetch so very powerful
      • rock layers- permeable rocks lay on top of impermeable clay
        • water builds up within cliffs -> increased weight on cliffs -> collapse
