Option 4: Dune management

Dune management requires importing sand from elsewhere on the beach to rebuild the dune. The rebuilt dune can then be vegetated.

Option 5: Sand bags

Sand bags is a temporary response to beach erosion, however, they can sometimes be used as a longer term solution.

Option 6: Informal rock management

Rock can be placed on the beach during or after a storm to slow erosion. the rock is imply dumped with no attempt to build a formal wall.

Option 7: Groynes or artificial headlands

Groynes trap sand and create a buffer between assets and storm erosion. They are effective in stabilising foreshores in areas with significant along shore sand movement.

Option 8: Offshore breakwaters, artificial reefs and beach sills

An offshore breakwater breaks up incoming waves and reduces wave energy reaching the shore. Sand builds up behind the structure.

Option 9: Rock revetment
