The programme of works for coastal features enhances and improves access, usage and enjoyment of the Island's coastline, beaches and bays.
Coastal features are an important part of the Island's coastline. They comprise the Island's military structures, slipways, coastal paths, coastal car parks, access points to the seafront, the causeways at Lihou and Fort Grey and the bathing pools.
Coastal features contribute to the Island's unique coastal beauty; they do not significantly protect us from coastal flooding or erosion. Features often provide access to beaches and bays. They are sometimes an important part of the Island's military history or fishing industry and can continue to support industry. In some cases, a feature may act as part of a coastal defence - e.g. a slipway can act as a groyne - and can help coastal defence units to reduce and prevent sediment loss or erosion overall as they often appear in the middle of a coastal defence unit.
