This document is the third revision of the Management Plan first submitted to UNESCO for scrutiny in 1999 as part of Dorset and East Devon Coast’s nomination for World Heritage Site listing. It is a formal requirement of both UNESCO and the UK Government for managing a World Heritage Site. It is a public document which outlines aims and policies for managing the Site over the coming years, and indicates a range of activities for achieving them. It also explains the reasons for designation and how it is protected and managed. It is open to wide public consultation so that a greater degree of community participation in management is achieved.
