Management Plan 2019 – 2024

Management Plan 

The Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 requires that all Local Authorities covering the North Devon AONB act together to review their Management Plan every five years. This process was completed in March 2019 and a new Plan produced and adopted by the three local planning authorities. The policies and priority actions in the new Plan reflect the challenges and opportunities highlighted in the sections on ‘Forces for Change’ as well as the consultation responses from AONB Partnership members, local and regional agencies, six ‘expert debates’ and a formal public consultation process in the Autumn of 2019. Thank you to everyone who made contributions. Due to the changeable policy context, the AONB Partnership decided to produce an annual delivery plan rather than a five year one (see below), but have included indicative medium and long term priorities alongside known priorities for the first two years.
