North East Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment - Executive Summary

A desk based rapid coastal zone assessment of the threat posed to heritage assets in the North East by rising sea level and consequential coastal erosion. The North East Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment, or NERCZA, is one of a series of projects initiated by English Heritage around the coasts of England. The brief specifically required that the assessment be undertaken with reference to Defra’s Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs).

This Executive Summary supercedes the Project Report circulated in December 2008. It does not provide information on every heritage asset but provides details of the sites considered by the project team to be most significant. Exhaustive lists of all the heritage assets are present within the project GIS.
