We have corrected an error with our coastal towns lookup, meaning an additional 11 local authorities that were not originally listed as containing coastal towns, are now listed as containing coastal towns. These are:

  • Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole
  • Castle Point
  • Dorset
  • East Suffolk
  • City of Kingston Upon Hull
  • Liverpool
  • Rochford
  • Somerset West and Taunton
  • Wealden
  • West Lancashire
  • Worthing

The proportion of coastal towns within each cluster have been updated in this article alongside our accompanying dataset. This happened because of human error. We apologise for any misunderstanding caused.
