By Julie Satchell, Brandon Mason, Mark Beattie‐Edwards, Peta Knott

This Conservation Statement and Management Plan has been produced to enable local and regional stakeholder involvement in the conservation management of the Chesil Beach sites, to balance both the sites protection along with economic and social needs. The principle aim of the Conservation Management Plan is to identify a shared vision of how these values of the Chesil Beach Wrecks can be conserved, maintained and enhanced for future generations.
