These are the criteria that will be used when selecting ShoreDIG projects. In cases where more projects than can be supported are put forward, the project Advisory Group will make the final decision.
- There must be evidence of local involvement and support to develop and carry out the project.
- Sites where ShoreDIG activities have the most potential for community benefit will be prioritised.
- Projects must show potential for involving our target audiences of new heritage volunteers within coastal communities and young people as well as established community heritage groups.
- Project resources for ShoreDIGs will be distributed as equitably as possible amongst regions.
- Sites must be either one of the existing Priority sites, or have been identified as priorities as a result of new information.
- Sites must be threatened by coastal erosion.
- Sites must be accessible and it must be possible to work safely on them.
- All constraints must have been identified, for example, legal designations at and around the site, and relevant permissions applied for or in place.
- Landowners permission to work at the sites must have been granted.
- As far as possible, ShoreDIG projects will cover a range of site types.
- Projects must be achievable within the project timetable and be completed by August 2016.
- Projects that have potential for wider benefits e.g. interpretation, improved site condition and management, opportunities for involvement of a wider audience through project related events (e.g. open days, guided walks) will be prioritised.
- A range of investigation and interpretation techniques and methods will be employed across ShoreDIG projects.
