Swanage North Cliff

The cliffs that back onto Swanage North Beach are actively unstable and will experience further instability and cliff-top recession in the future, up to 100 residential and commercial premises are located within this area, and many of these also own different parts of the cliff slope and so are responsible for management of instability issues in the cliff area. Unless actions are taken to slow down the process, these premises will increasingly become more exposed to cliff recession that could ultimately cause their loss.

This is an example of a local Dorset beach management scheme
