Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site Partnership Plan: 2020-2025

The Jurassic Coast Trust is currently creating a new Partnership Plan in collaboration with a wide variety of stakeholders. This new Partnership Plan will be published towards the end of 2019 and will guide management of the World Heritage Site over the next five years.

As part of the creation of the new Partnership Plan, a consultation process will be undertaken from August-September 2019. Please see details below as well as documents for review.


Have Your Say on How the Jurassic Coast is Cared For

The new Jurassic Coast Partnership Plan is out for public consultation.

This important document is a tangible expression of the Partnership that looks after the Jurassic Coast. It explains the reasons for the Jurassic Coast’s World Heritage designation and how it is protected and managed. It also outlines the aims, policies, actions and aspirations for managing the Site over the coming years.

The Partnership Plan is a formal requirement and will replace the current Site Management Plan, which is available online here.

You can download the draft Jurassic Coast Partnership Plan using the links below. To request a printed copy please email us or telephone 01308 807000.


We would love to hear your views!

The Jurassic Coast Trust is conducting a public consultation about the new Partnership Plan on behalf of the Jurassic Coast Partnership. You can contribute your views using an online survey, a printed survey or by sending them directly to the Jurassic Coast Trust. See links below.
