The Team and our Partners
The Team is composed of many individuals across the proposed National Park area. Members are not representatives of organisations noted against their names.
Many other individuals including Dorset, District, Parish and Town Councillors have expressed
their support for the proposed National Park. Expressions of support include:
Prof Dennis Brunsden – Geomorphologist, initiator of Jurassic Coast World Heritage designation
“We were delighted when the Jurassic Coast became Britain’s first and only natural World Heritage Site – a well-deserved honour. Becoming a National Park is the logical next step in valuing and safeguarding this area’s fabulous natural assets.”
Edward Fox – Actor
“This is a great opportunity and well-deserved recognition for the Dorset and East Devon landscape and heritage. National Park status would attract visitors and bring new funding opportunities. We would benefit from a more joined-up and sensitive approach to valuing and caring for our world-class environment. The area narrowly missed designation as a National Park after the Second World War. This second chance must not be missed.”
Prof James Lovelock – Author
“The proposed National Park has an important part to play in protecting Dorset and the Jurassic Coast.”
Jon Snow – Broadcaster, Cycling UK President
“Life is like a cake. This area is one of the cherries on the icing on the cake.”
Many organisations have expressed their interest and support. These include:
The Dorset & East Devon National Park is a Community Interest Company (CIC).
The work of the Team is funded by its members.
