Huw Williams and Rob Williams of Gwynedd Council together with Phil Bennett-Lloyd (JBA Consulting) will talk about the link between engineering and social, economic and environmental improvement, the benefits of clear and confident decision making and managing the impact of change upon those it affects.

This webinar draws upon the experience of different approaches to community engagement, tailored to the needs and understanding of local communities in promoting different aspects of coastal adaptation.

The initial concerns were identified through the development of the Shoreline Management Plan, which was adopted in 2013 by each of the operating (Flood Risk Management) authorities and in several locations some form of adaptation is required to the way in which the shoreline being managed.

The session highlights the complexity associated with managing change. It will examine how change may affect communities, where the very simple terms, such as managed realignment, have very little meaning in the absence of local context.
