Your Views on Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Feb 7, 2016

Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Unit is asking local residents to share their views on the Public Consultation Draft of their new 2016-2021 Management Plan.

Over 300 responses were received during an informal 12 week consultation during Summer 2015, seeking views on the use and gaps of the current Cornwall AONB Management Plan 2011-2016.  These valuable comments have helped in the writing of the Public Consultation Draft of the new 2016-2021 Plan.

The closing date for comments is midday on Monday 21st March 2016.  Comments will then be collated and considered and will form part of the supporting evidence base for the Final Version of the Management Plan which will be published in early Summer 2016, following consideration and adoption by Cornwall Council.

You can comment on the Public Consultation Draft via an online survey which can be found by clicking here.
