Coastcare Resources

The aim of this webpage it to create a resources library for Coastcare groups operating within the NAR. The materials found on this page are intended to provide support for best-practice planning and delivery of on-ground projects, and to streamline these activities.

Reference documents about coastal planning can be found here, along with coastal management plans and strategies relevant to the NAR. These documents are valuable for planning purposes and as references for supporting funding applications.
