Management Plan 2019-24 Consultation
Please help shape the future of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
The Cranborne Chase AONB is a nationally protected landscape of international significance. Forming part of the extensive belt of chalkland that stretches across southern central England, the AONBs special qualities flow from the historical interaction of humans and the land. Qualities include its diversity, distinctiveness, sense of history and remoteness, dark night skies, tranquillity; and its overwhelmingly rural character.
The landscapes, and the wildlife they support, are some of the special features of Cranborne Chase AONB. Their future is protected and enhanced through an AONB Management Plan, a legal document which is adopted by all the local authorities in which the Cranborne Chase AONB sits.
Every five years the AONB Management Plan is reviewed. As part of this task we have launched this public consultation to gather views on the draft Management Plan to cover the period 2019-24. This is your opportunity to make known your thoughts and ideas on this draft Plan.
Everyone is important in this process; your ideas, comments, thoughts and suggestions can all help us to shape the Management Plan which will influence our work and the future of the Cranborne Chase AONB. It’s an opportunity to let us know what you love about the area, and how you think that change should be managed over the next five years, to best safeguard the natural beauty of the AONB.
There is a 12 week period in which you can make your views known to us, ending at 5pm on Tuesday 27th November 2018. Please give your comments about each of the chapters, or just those that interest you the most. If you have any particular concerns or interests do feel free to explain fully, giving us as much information as possible.
