Abstract
    In this paper the development of management plans for estuaries and coasts in NW Europe is explored, based upon experiences with a European co-operation project on Natura 2000 and based on a limited literature study. Management plans become more important, now the European Commission has accepted the list of designated sites for the Atlantic Region (EC, 2004). Based on the review of a number of aspects: conservation objectives, stakeholder consultation and management structure, some of the main experiences with the development of management plans are described. The focus of this paper is particularly on the organisational and managerial aspects of management plans. It does not aim to develop statements that can be generalised for a larger number of management plans, but instead intends to form an impression of relevant experiences in two EU countries, the UK and France, that early-on started with the development of management plans for large aquatic surfaces in terms of the Habitats Directive. A number of observations are described and recommendations for further discussion at European level are presented. Designation issues are not dealt with in-depth in this article, apart from their relevance in relation to the delay of the development of management plans.
