The Urban Heaths Partnership is made up of 14 organisations working together to protect and enhance the Dorset heathlands.

The Urban Heaths Partnership is made up of 14 organisations working together to protect and enhance the Dorset heathlands:

  • Borough of Poole
  • Bournemouth Borough Council
  • Christchurch Borough Council
  • Dorset County Council
  • Dorset Fire and Rescue Service
  • Dorset Police
  • Dorset Wildlife Trust
  • East Dorset District Council
  • Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust
  • Natural England
  • Purbeck District Council

The Partnership's aim is to alleviate urban pressures on the Dorset heaths brought about by new residential development in the area.  

This is achieved with a combination of wardening, an inclusive education programme, access management and fire risk assessment and Heath Management.

There are several strands of Monitoring to establish baseline data and to gauge success of work and projects.

    The Urban Heaths Partnership is pleased to be hosting the UK Wildfire Conference in Dorset for the first time on the 7 and 8 of November 2017.
