Residents Views Sought on Dorset World Heritage Site

Coast 1

2:04pm 4th November 2013

People who use and live near the Jurassic Coastline are being asked how it should be looked after.

The stunning stretch extends 95 miles from Exmouth to Studland and managers are looking at ways to preserve it for the future.

Dorset County Council help shape the management plan every 5 years.

Sam Rose, Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site Manager said:

"The most important people for the future protection, conservation and use of the World Heritage Site are those who live or work on, or near it, and those who visit and enjoy it. This plan is in draft form so that anyone with an interest in the Jurassic Coast can have a say in its management, and we would like to hear from you."

Cllr Hilary Cox, Dorset County Council's Cabinet member, said:

"The Jurassic Coast benefits local people in many different ways. It is important that we manage this in a way that continues to support communities."

The plan is available online here, in libraries museums and visitor centres along the coastline. A printed version is available on request - call 01305 221000 and ask for the Jurassic Coast Team. The consultation closes on Monday 30 December.
