The replacement of agricultural and natural landcovers with more urban, artificial landcover can be studied with the help of the Coordination of Information on the Environment (CORINE) dataset series. The programme initiated in 1985 by the European Commission provides pan-European records of landcover from 1990 to most recently 2006, allowing us establish estimates on the percentage of landcover change in our coastal areas. This in turn allows us to appraise development in terms of coastal sustainability.
