    The designation of Heritage Coasts was introduced in 1972. The Countryside Commission proposed the Heritage Coast concept as a way of protecting “stretches of undeveloped coastline of high scenic quality, whilst at the same time allowing for informal recreational use”. Thus, Heritage Coasts were designed to simultaneously provide recreational provision and to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the coastline.
