The coastline is an important part of the country's natural heritage since it provides valuable scenery, plant and wildlife habitats, and geographical features. The coast also provides significant benefits of shelter and deep water for ports and harbours, breeding grounds for fish and shellfish, and opportunities for tourism and recreation. The developed coast has its share of dereliction and of land which will need to be re-developed in the forseeable future. This report addresses the technical earth science information on the physical environment needed to support decision making in the coastal zone, with particular reference to the earth science information needs at the various stages of the planning and development process. The report has relevance for a wider audience, by describing the key considerations that need to be addressed by all those with an interest or responsibility in coastal management.
