Plymouth University have estimated coastal change over the next 100 years using the most update information, but coastal change is a dynamic natural process so there is no guarantee that the changes will happen as predicted or that other areas won’t be affected over the next 100 years. Also, we have plans in place (through the Seaton and Sidmouth Beach Management Plans) for coastal protection works that are designed to reduce the rate of cliff erosion. It is important to note that the University work takes no account of these proposed coastal defence works
