Global climate change will have extensive implications for built facilities, affecting the materials used and the design and management of the structures. A case study of a southern England community was conducted to assess the problems local authorities in coastal areas will need to address under various climate change scenarios, both as managers of municipal infrastructures and as planning authorities for new developments involving built facilities. A climatic impact assessment (CIA) is proposed that should be a mandatory component of the approval process for all new built developments. To ensure consistent decision making, the CIA has a formal structure of four processes: assessing the need for CIA, determining the scope of the required CIA, conducting the detailed analysis, and submitting the report to the planning authority.
