In 2019 an extensive report was published: Managing visitors with dogs within The Wash and North Norfolk Marine Partnership (WNNMP) area.
This case study-led review of current policy and practice resulted in recommendations for partnership-wide improvements to protect nature and culture.
Funding from West Norfolk Habitats Monitoring and Mitigation (HMM) Fund has enabled the Norfolk Coast Partnership to deliver a joint project with WNNMP to deliver the recommendations from the report.
The recommendations include:
- Guidance notes: produce a series of simple practical guidance notes to support sites in managing their visitors with dogs
- Dog Walking Code : share across sites to ensure consistency in messaging
- Professional dog-walkers workshop session to better support this user group
- Communications strategy support: provide advice to support sites in the development of their communications strategy and influence visitor-facing websites
