Okay, so I’m assuming this is to do with erosion? How many marks is the question worth? We haven’t studied this for a while, but as far as I can remember you’d be talking about things like groynes, sea walls, rock armour, dune regeneration, beach nourishment etc. To evaluate different methods, you’d have to outline a few different strategies and then compare them to each other, weighing advantages and disadvantages of things like cost and effectiveness, and then to conclude, say overall which methods you think are the best.

Hope this helps!

Think about different methods of coastal management, both hard engineering ( e.g groynes and sea walls), and soft engineering (e.g beach nourishment), are they sustainable approaches to protecting the coastline, how much do they cost, do they work well, do they harm the environment. Could they be used for all of the coastline, or will they be hard to put in place in some areas. The question says evaluate the extent, which tends to mean both sides of the argument.

Little bit of an example, sea walls are expensive to build, but do work very well in terms of lowering the effects of erosion. However, they are hard to install in some places.

Hope that this has been helpful.

So this is how i would plan it:
1. Intro, define the key words (sustainability, sustainable management plans- hold the line, managed retreat, do nothibg) and talk breifly about why coastlines need to be protected (so erosion)
I would then do a paragraph on each of the sustainable managment plans
2. Could be on hold the line so talk about groynes and other defences. Talk about how soft engineering is generally more sustainable than hard engineering etc. Use Point, evidence, explain, link back (PEEL). Point could be a long the lines of how holding the line isn’t a very sustainable approach but soft engineering could make it more so. Evidence should be a case study (eg swanage hard hard engineering defences in place to hold the line) explain should be explaining how it’s Relevant. Then link should be summing up and answering the question in approx one sentence.
2. Do the same for managed retreat
3. Do the same for do nothing
4. Do the same for advance the line
5. Make a conclusion, concluded which is the most sustainable option etc.

Edit: sorry about the bad grammar and typos cant be bothered to change it
