The Jurassic Coast Trust is currently creating a new Partnership Plan in collaboration with a wide variety of stakeholders. 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 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. The Partnership Plan is a formal requirement and will replace the current Site Management Plan, which is available online here.
As part of the creation of the new Partnership Plan, a consultation process was undertaken from August-September 2019.

Creating the New Partnership Plan
The Jurassic Coast Trust and our stakeholders are currently collating all responses to the Partnership Plan consultation. Once these have been collated, a report will be produced by the Jurassic Coast Partnership detailing their responses and indicating how the Plan will be amended from the initial draft versions shown above. The report will be made available online and to anyone who has asked to be sent updates on the progress of the Plan.
Once an amended version of the Plan is agreed by the Jurassic Coast Partnership and approved by Historic England, it will be adopted by Dorset Council and Devon County Council before being formally submitted to DCMS and UNESCO.
