Welcome to Coastal Partnership East

Coastal Partnership East is an innovative approach to managing the coast between Holkham in North Norfolk and Landguard Point in Felixstowe.

Who we are

Coastal Partnership East brings together the coastal management resources and expertise from Great Yarmouth Borough Council, North Norfolk District Council, and East Suffolk Council.

Coastal Partnership East works in partnership with the Environment Agency, the Water Management Alliance, coast and estuary community partnerships and others along the 173km of coast in Norfolk and Suffolk.

What do we do

The partner local authorities who make up Coastal Partnership East all have coast protection responsibilities under the Coast Protection Act 1949 – they are what is known as Risk Management Authorities. This means that they have permissive powers, not duties, to manage the coast whether this is through coastal adaptation, building new coastal/erosion defences, monitoring changes or repairing and maintaining existing defences.

Coastal Partnership East is the coastal management team who carry this out on behalf of the partner authorities
