Jurassic Coast World heritage site


Doug is currently working on Future Coast which is transforming the management of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site (WHS). The aim of this transition project is to achieve significant strategic change in order for the WHS to become more resilient and sustain improved management for the long term.

Currently administered by Devon and Dorset County Councils with supporter engagement along its 95 miles of coastline provided by the Jurassic Coast Trust, the WHS is complex both in terms of its scale and offer as well as its strategic leadership.

Doug is currently leading the transition from these three separate organisations into one world class operation, delivering 'a welcoming and cherished World Heritage Site in great condition'. His work here involves strategic planning, supporting work on brand and organisational values, developing a communications strategy as well as designing their membership and volunteer proposition. Our outputs for this project include corporate and business plans as well as an engaged and inspired team focussed on delivery in their new roles. To support this Doug is also acting as a Lemon Drizzle Buddy with key members of staff and enjoying spending time on the sunny (!) south coast!
