Dover Strait Implementation Plan

This plan represents the shared vision of Kent County Council and Pas-de-Calais Council for the Dover Strait to have greater recognition as a rich maritime and coastal environment with a long and fascinating cultural history. 

Through consistent actions to conserve and enhance the natural environment, the area will continue to be valued as a place to live, work and relax.

The plan was developed with local stakeholders on both sides of the strait through the Interreg IVC project NOSTRA (Network of STRAits) 2012 - 14. The work is being taken forward through the European Straits Initiative (ESI).
