The cliffs here are rapidly eroding, so that Seaside Road now terminates at the cliff edge Figure 1. As part of the continued programme of work monitoring coastal erosion and landsliding at several sites around the coast of Great Britain, the BGS is studying, monitoring and laser scanning the cliffs at Aldbrough in Yorkshire. The cliffs are actively receding and the cliff profile is stepped due to the contrasting erosion resistances of the tills and the different landslide processes in the upper and lower parts of the cliff. At high tides the lower, and in some case middle, sections of the cliff are subject to considerable erosion by wave action. Historical annual recession rates for the caravan site at Aldbrough are reported as being 1. The coastal erosion and sediment yield of the Holderness coast have been estimated Balson et al.
Addressing coastal erosion in Marche region, Italy — Climate-ADAPT
The Act and regulations recognize local government responsibility for land use decisions and are designed to establish a framework for compliance without dictating precisely what local programs must look like. Local governments have flexibility to develop water quality preservation programs that reflect unique local characteristics and embody other community goals. Such flexibility also facilitates innovative and creative approaches in achieving program objectives. The regulations address nonpoint source pollution by identifying and protecting certain lands called Chesapeake Bay Preservation Areas. The regulations use a resource-based approach that recognizes differences between various land forms and treats them.

The Holderness Coast is located on the east coast of England. It extends 61km from Flamborough in the north to Spurn Point in the south. This is around 2 million tonnes of material every year. These are shown on the map below.
