LGA Coastal SIG workshop, Wednesday 21st March 2018, Telford International Centre
SIG workshop: Resolving the biggest challenges on the coast – join the debate!
For all Risk Management Authorities there are some issues that we face, which seem to have no solution, or no easy solution. The LGA Coastal Special Interest Group invites you to learn about some of the problems faced by local authorities and to add your views on how we might collectively find a solution.
Capitalising on the breadth of knowledge and experience of Flood and Coast 2018 delegates, we will explore key areas such as capacity, consistency of language and processes and funding.
If we, collectively, can’t make a difference then who can?
Local authorities welcome participants from every discipline and sector to take part in what should be a very enjoyable and thought provoking session. This highly interactive workshop will combine learning with lively debate and active voting. Pose your questions live and take part in a session that develops with audience participation.
Co-ordinated by Bill Parker, Coastal Partnership East on behalf of the SIG with Paul Hayden, Chair of the Eastern Area Regional Flood and Coast Committee as lead facilitator.
- The objective of the LGA Coastal Special Interest Group is to raise its profile amongst coastal local authorities and other Risk Management Authorities and service providers.
- Coastal SIG members would like to understand whether others share the perceptions and view points of coastal local authorities.

- Have the opportunity to contribute to how coastal management is considered in local authorities.
- Have the opportunity to ask questions of coastal local authorities.
- Are in receipt of workshop outputs and evaluation to enable learning to be taken away and additional questions asked to contribute to the debate and potential solutions.
