Projects

The objectives of this project are:
A. to provide evidence to Defra and others as to whether rollback and buy/leaseback are feasible and desirable options for Local Authorities affected by coastal change where the Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) recommends a policy of managed realignment of defences or no active intervention
B. to provide useful evidence on rollback and buy/leaseback for Local Authorities working through their options
C. to provide Local Authorities with new approaches to adapting to coastal change if rollback and buy/leaseback are found to be feasible and replicable

These objectives reflect that the focus of this study is on evaluating rollback and buy/leaseback, rather than the Pathfinder projects themselves. As such the emphasis is on identifying actions and activities related to rollback and buy/leaseback, including barriers to their uptake, costs and benefits that resulted.
