Coast protection

Contact us via ACCESSLine on 03452 777 778 or use our enquiry form if you have any concerns about:

  • damage to a coast protection structure
  • erosion to the coast
  • the stability of a coast protection structure or coastal slope

Out of office hours, if you consider that this is an emergency/safety hazard, call 07850 703564.

Please give us as much detail as possible about the location and the coast protection structure or coastal erosion.

We inspect and maintain coast protection structures in our ownership to prevent erosion and damage, and maintain public safety.

We are not obliged by law to protect eroding coastlines. Responsibility for management and prevention of erosion rests with the landowner of the site concerned.

Schemes proposed by landowners require our consent.

Further information is available in the Angus Shoreline Management Plan.
