The emphasis now put on the idea that of sediment cells as obstacles for coastal defence teams, and the advance of SMPs, can help CPAs appreciate the significance of common approaches on the coast whilst designing defence and safety schemes. even if, it will simply be the case the place defence teams exist, and the place CPAs take in the problem of constructing SMPs. Coastal landscapes were produced by means of the normal forces of wind, waves and tides, and plenty of are nationally or across the world very important for his or her habitats and typical beneficial properties. earlier practices on the coast, reminiscent of the development of harbours, jetties and standard defence structures could have contributed to the deterioration of the coast. English Nature (1992) have argued that if practices and techniques of coastal defence are allowed to proceed, then coastlines will be confronted with worsening results, together with: The lack of mudflats and the birds which continue to exist them harm to geological websites of distinctive clinical curiosity (SSSIs) and scenic history by means of erosion, as a result of the stabilisation of the coast in other places slicing of sediment offers to seashores leading to the lack of coastal natural world Cessation via isolation from coastal tactics, of the ordinary operation of spits, with severe deterioration of infrequent crops, animals and geomorphological and scenic characteristics (English Nature, 1992) a couple of designations, supplied by means of nationwide and foreign laws do exist to help conservation.

The North Sea beaches, for example, are normally set in arcs reflecting the dominant fetch of southeasterly wind-generated waves, and thus contrast with the more sheltered arc of Burghead Bay. Special attention should be paid to the area between Fraserburgh and Peterhead where open fetches to the north and northeast create particularly exposed and potentially high energy conditions. Certain beaches like Stotfield Links are partially protected by off-lying skerries, others have very narrow exposure arcs governed by the relatively rigid geological framework as in the case of much of the Banffshire coast.

Lee (1993) also argues that sediment cells will not be relevant to all aspects of coastal management, particularly where landward geomorphological systems are concerned. The ability of plans based entirely on sediment cells to integrate management strategies, may, therefore, be questioned; any framework not bringing all issues together is not totally integrating them. Another dilemma faced by the SMP initiative is that it is non-statutory, although Jemmett (1995) argues that there are some advantages to this system.
