An independent strategic coastal partnership

Dorset Coastal Community Team

The Dorset Coastal Community Team (DCCT), represented by the Dorset Coast Forum, covers the coast from Weymouth to Christchurch, as well as areas of the coast to the west of Weymouth which aren’t covered by the other four coastal community teams.

Coastal Community Teams are local partnerships consisting of the local authority and a range of people and business interests from a coastal community who have an understanding of the issues facing that area and can develop an effective forward strategy their location. In July 2015 the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) invited the creation of Coastal Community Teams (CCT) with their main objective being to write an economic plan for their area by 31 January 2016.
