The overtopping assessment methodology, determination of trigger levels and link to coastal monitoring are incorporated into the EA Asset Performance Tools and appendix to the CIRIA Beach Management Manual.
Coastal monitoring reporting is now using heat maps and will report survey results using the synthesis graphs.
During the project, the Hythe to Folkestone BMP was completed by Herington Consulting in 2014 using the then available data and principles.In 2017, EA commissioned Canterbury to produce the more local Minster to Sheerness and Romney Sands to St Mary’s Bay BMPs following exactly the approach and template developed for this project.
The BMPs produced represented good value for money and continue save costs. In comparison to the new BMP was only cost 2/3 (inflation adjusted) of the Minster to Sheerness BMP produced in 2011 by a consultant demonstrating early returns and benefits of the project.
Progress of the project was regularly reported to the Southeast and Southern Coastal Groups with the outputs being added to the website of the Southeast Coastal Group. Wider dissemination included a range of conference with the following outputs:
