Residents’ perceptions of coastal flood risk and its management at Emsworth, United Kingdom have been analysed using a mail survey. Research findings indicate an apparent complacency of attitudes such as “I am safe" and “I can cope" with flooding. The need for more effective, simpler communication along with more publicity from Operating Authorities regarding coastal flood risk was apparent.
