5. Can we use the CCMA rates to help better fund our Beach Management Schemes?

Unfortunately not. The majority of the funding for the BMPs come from central government and its administered by the Environment Agency. Current guidance indicates that reasonable worst case erosion rates cannot be used to justify funding.  Also larger funding requirements will attract greater scrutiny, therefore the CCMA study will unlikely be enough without additional study, taking in longer term erosion rates.
