  • Coastal Management (Spurn Head)
    • Protected by; Sea walls, Groynes and Rock Armour
    • Cost £2 million for 2 rock groynes
    • Cause narrow beaches
    • Increased erosion down the coast now at risk of falling into the sea
    • Successful locally but cause problems else where
    • South more at risk of flooding due to less material
    • Risk of being eroded away because of less material
    • Bays are turning into headlands which are being eroded more heavily - maintaining the defences is becoming more expensive
