Coastline - protection
Review and maintenance of coastal protection (sea walls etc.) is the responsibility of the district or borough council in whose area the portion of coast is located.
The only coastline in North Yorkshire lies within the Scarborough Borough Council area.
The coastline, approximately 67km (42 miles) in length, stretches from Staithes in the North to Speeton Cliffs in the South. Some 15km (9.5 miles) is defended by either natural or man-made structures to protect it from the aggressive North Sea environment.
