This is the photo gallery of the National Network of Regional Coastal Monitoring Programmes. The Programmes consist of six Regional Monitoring Programmes. For each programme, a Lead Local Authority takes responsibility for funding applications, budget control, data collection, quality control, implementation of the programme and makes sure the programme gets delivered to its partners in the Regional Programme and the Coastal Group.
The Programmes collect and distribute the necessary data to underpin evidence-based decisions regarding strategic and local level Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM). Funding for the Programmes is secured in five-year cycles from DEFRA and administrated through the Environment Agency.
