The futurecoast project was commissioned by Defra in 2002 to support the Shoreline Management Review process. It collated and assessed available knowledge on past change at different scales, and described the way in which our coastline might be expected to evolve in the coming decades.
The project was originally distributed on CD but over time access to information has declined.
Much of the knowledge and assessment remains relevant so the Defra/EA/WG Research and Development programme has funded a new route to the futurecoast datasets making them readily useable for years to come; they can now be downloaded as GIS data layers and project files.
