Dorset National Park Proposed Area

 

The proposed area includes the Dorset AONB and East Devon AONB, which together cover the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. The proposed area offers uniquely varied and internationally important landscapes, geology, habitats and biodiversity, and includes an area of additional heathland habitat in east and central Dorset (what remains of Thomas Hardy’s 'Egdon Heath'). Other areas of Dorset are pressing to be included and this map is just a starting point.

Some key numbers for Dorset and for East Devon.
