Welcome to the Severn Estuary Coastal Group site
The Severn Estuary Coastal Group (SECG) works to promote sustainable shoreline management, and to facilitate the duties and responsibilities of local authorities and other organisations managing coastal protection & flood defence issues around the Severn Estuary.
The area covered by the group spans from Lavernock Point in Wales to Anchor Head and Haw Bridge in England.
The Severn Estuary Coastal Group was formed in 1993 initially to deal with the preparation and completion of the first Shoreline Management Plan for the Estuary area from upstream of Lavernock Point west of Cardiff and Brean Down in Somerset.
Shoreline Management Plan Review (SMP2) Stakeholder Events
The Severn Estuary Coastal Group (SECG) is undertaking a Shoreline Management Plan Review (SMP2) for the Severn Estuary to develop sustainable shoreline management policies for the Estuary. The SECG is holding a number of events to present the SMP2 development process and start to develop the SMP2 with the help of stakeholders around the Severn Estuary. Your opinions and views are important in developing an effective SMP that enables everyone around the coast to plan for and manage the way the coast changes over time.
Severn Estuary – Flooding and the Future – Have Your Say
The Severn Estuary Coastal Group (SECG) has been working to develop a Shoreline Management Plan Review (SMP2) for the Severn Estuary to provide policies to manage the shoreline and the risks from erosion and flooding around the Estuary. The Severn Estuary Shoreline Management Plan Review (referred to as SMP2) is now subject to a 3 month public consultation period. Further infomation, including access to the SMP2 documents can be found on the stakeholder engagement page.
The Severn Estuary Coastal Group (SECG) is a partnership of local authorities and other organisations around the Severn Estuary that is developing the SMP2. Atkins Limited and the Severn Estuary Partnership (SEP) are assisting the SECG to develop the SMP2 and consult with people around the Estuary.
More information about the SMP2 is available on the Shoreline Management Plan review page
