Our coastline - getting involved

What can I do if I live in a changing coastal area?

If you live in an area that is affected by coastal erosion you can do the following:

  • Be aware of the level of risk you face - see the 'How quickly is the East Riding coast eroding?' question for more details;
  • Check weather forecasts and flood warnings regularly and put steps in place to plan for extreme events; please see the Environment Agency's website:
