Overview

Managed realignment is an approach that involves altering the location of the line of defence against coastal, estuarine or fluvial flooding.

The need for managed realignment is driven by a number of factors, including development, climate change and increasing cost to maintain and replace front line coastal defences. With such pressures on-going, the need for managed realignment continues, but it is becoming harder to locate sites for future projects. So what lessons have we learnt so far?

The event will highlight two managed realignment schemes, drawing out the key learning points for application to future projects:

The future of managed realignment in the UK will also be discussed.
