Coastal Conservation Policy Development in England and Wales with Special Reference to the Heritage Coast Concept

A.T. Williams

Abstract


The background to conservation policy in England and Wales is discussed with special reference to the philosophy and aims of Heritage Coasts. The emphasis for management in Heritage Coast areas is one of non-statutory, voluntary and community based approaches to management. Key points in this approach are the roles of agriculture, recreation and conservation, management policies being geared to reinforcing the natural qualities of the coastline with respect to these potential areas of conflict.
