Coastal Sensitivity Area (Open Coast) identifies land in rural areas along the open coastline and within the estuaries, which includes areas of the coastal margin that could potentially be impacted by coastal flooding and/or coastal erosion, assuming sea level rise of 1.0 m to 2120. This belongs to the series of data relating to Natural Hazards which includes the following groups - coastal erosion, coastal inundation, inland flooding, and land subsidence. This layer belongs to both the coastal erosion group and the coastal inundation group. Use in conjunction with High Risk Coastal Hazard (Erosion) Area, Coastal Sensitivity (Erosion) Area, High Risk Coastal Hazard (Inundation) Area, and Coastal Sensitivity (Inundation) Area.
