Preserve and welcome
The Region, the Department and the Municipality are associated to form a public establishment, the Syndicat Mixte de la Grande Dune du Pilat.
His role ? The Public Management of the lands of the Grand Site, in particular those entrusted by the Conservatoire du littoral. Alongside its partners, the Syndicat Mixte works on a daily basis to preserve these fragile environments, ensure their valuation and their visit in the best possible conditions.
The Syndicat Mixte is administered by a Syndicate Committee made up two representatives from each community. Since 2016, the regional councilor, Nathalie Le Yondre, has been the President of the establishment.
Composition of the Syndicate Committee :
- Nathalie Le Yondre and Sandrine Laffore, regional advisers
- Karine Desmoulin and Cédric Pain, departmental advisers
- Patrick Davet and Eric Bernard, Mayor and municipal councilor
Public action is guided by the national policy of the Great Sites of France, initiated by the State, addressing, like the Dune du Pilat, exceptional landscapes of our heritage.
How to find the balance between protecting remarkable landscapes, welcoming a large number of visitors and local development?
These issues are at the heart of the public action carried out on the territory of the Grand Site of the Dune du Pilat for more than 15 years.
