You may wish to carry out an initial assessment to identify any of your assets or plans which could be at risk from coastal erosion and sea flooding. The resources outlined below could be useful for this type of assessment.
Our flood maps – for flooding from the sea
Our flood maps are a good starting point to establish whether you have assets at current risk of coastal flooding. These maps use the best available data to give an initial indication of the flood risk to an area of land. You can use the flood maps to identify any assets that merit more detailed flood risk assessment.

Coastal Erosion Risk Mapping tool
Our new coastal erosion risk mapping tool can help you decide whether your organisation is at risk of coastal erosion. It will be a valuable resource for any high-level assessment of coastal risks. During 2010-11 we will publish the risk mapping data for England on our website, and we will publish similar information for Wales in 2011-12.
