Planning Policy Guidance 20: Coastal Planning

Planning Policy Guidance 20 (PPG20) covers the character of the coast, designated areas, heritage coasts and the international dimension. Published on 1 October 1992 but dated September 1992.

The new Planning Policy Statement 25 Supplement: Development and Coastal Change replaces the policy on managing the impacts of coastal erosion to development set out in PPG20, which is cancelled with the exception of paragraphs 2.9, 2.10 and 3.9. When, following introduction of the new Planning Policy Statement: Planning for a Natural and Healthy Environment (consultation published on 9 March 2010) all other relevant policies set out in PPG20 are included in other Planning Policy Statements (PPSs), PPG20 will be cancelled.
