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 in 2020 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 was undertaken from August-September 2019. For further details see our Partnership Plan 2020-2025 page.


Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site Management Plan: 2014-19

JCWHS management plan

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.

Economic Impact of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site Designation: 2015

In 2015 the Jurassic Coast Team worked with Dorset County Council and the Dorset AONB Team to undertake a piece of work to evaluate the value of Dorset’s Environmental Economy.

The study, undertaken by Ash Futures consultants, was all encompassing, but included a detailed case study into the economic impact of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site designation.  The three documents here give the full report, a summary of the full report, and the detailed case study about the Jurassic Coast.
