Coastal Groups comprise all the key partners in coastal management - principally the coastal managers from maritime Local Authorities, Ports Authorities and the Environment Agency.  Other interested organisations, such as Natural England and English Heritage, will also be members.

They are voluntary groups with significant influence.  They do not receive funding from central government but are resourced through a range of mechanisms generally involving membership contributions.

There are seven strategic coastal groups in England, as prescribed by Defra in March 2008, each of them formed with regard to local coastal processes and River Basin Management Plans:

North East Coastal Group

St Abb’s Head to Gibraltar Point

East Anglia Coastal Group

Gibraltar Point to Thames Barrier

South East Coastal Group

Southern Coastal Group

Bristol Channel Strategic Group comprising:

Coastal group boundaries are not coincident with national boundaries and, following coastal process principles, the strategic groups need to consider issues beyond the English borders.
