Conservation boards for AONBs

The first two conservation boards for areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONBs) were formally established this week in the Cotswolds and the Chilterns.

The boards, set up under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, are intended to provide a stronger independent voice and a central focus for AONB conservation and promotion work. They will be required to produce and review management plans but will not have development control powers.
