The House of Commons committee for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has recently produced an interim report regarding 'Coastal flooding and erosion, and the adaptation to climate change' (click text to view whole report)
ECO is listed as one of the parties submitting written evidence and there is a link to that document within the report.
There is quite a bit on the shoreline management plan and about involving communities, although not so much about listening to them. Also lots about encouraging private sector cost sharing.
