Reason for Decision

 The Jurassic Coast Partnership Plan and Dorset Council’s continued support of the Jurassic Coast Trust helps us to deliver a number of actions outlined in the Corporate Plan in an effective and cost efficient way; delivering services that protect our natural, historic and cultural environments, capitalising on Dorset’s unique environmental assets to support our priorities and providing an environment that attracts business investment, tourism and a skilled workforce. The partnership plan enables us to meet UNESCO and UK Government requirements with regard to management of the World Heritage Site.
