How lucky we are to live in the county of Dorset with such a rich and diverse environment. In a recent report from Dorset County Council, State of Dorset says the ‘environmental economy’ is worth between £0.9 billion and £2.5 billion that according to civic chief  needs to be protected.

Along with the huge natural benefits the the natural and historic environment supports between 17,000 and 61,000 jobs across the county, contributing between 5 and 15% of the county’s total economy.

 

This, the report says, was supported by the fact that 90 per cent of Dorset residents surveyed said the environment was “an important, very important or crucial factor” in their decision to live in the county and as a result put a significant “price premium” on their homes.

Alongside this, civic chiefs highlighted that they had also seen a decrease in the amount of waste sent to landfill in the county by around 66 per cent in the last 10 years while the county’s ‘low carbon economy’ has the potential to grow by 11 per cent by 2030.
