This Habitat Action Plan has been prepared through consultation with a range of organisations and specialists within the Isle of Wight BAP Partnership. It covers a ten-year period from 2004-2014, with a review in 2009. This action plan embraces a number of estuarine and coastal habitats that are identified as individual habitatstypes within the UK BAP. The plan will assist in ensuring that national objectives for coastal and estuarine habitats identified under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan are translated into effective action on the Island, taking into account local issues. The habitats occur in the major estuaries and along the Solent coastline.

The Isle of Wight Council and the Isle of Wight NHS, together with the Isle of Wight Rural Community Council and the Voluntary Sector Cabinet, have asked Island residents, including our voluntary and community organisations (VCOs), how we can create a thriving third sector on the Isle of Wight. This strategy reflects what people have told us. It sets out what we want to achieve and a way of meeting the many national and local objectives for our community including Eco Island, our Sustainable Community Strategy.
