The programme provides a consistent regional approach to coastal process monitoring, providing information for development of strategic shoreline management plans, coastal defence strategies and operational management of coastal protection and flood defence.
The programme is managed on behalf of the Coastal Groups of the Southeast of England and is funded by DEFRA, in partnership with local Authorities of the southeast of England and the Environment Agency.
The Channel Coastal Observatory (CCO) is the data management and regional coordination centre for the Southeast Regional Coastal Monitoring Programme.
The CCO is hosted by New Forest District Council, in partnership with the University of Southampton and the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton.
