AONB Gateway signs

New  signs denoting that Kingswear is a part of the South Devon AONB have been installed  at the entry points to Kingswear parish. The new signs are partly  thanks to grants  from  locality funds held by Cllr Jonathan Hawkins.

Cllr Hawkins said “Kingswear is proud to be in the AONB and this celebrates our beautiful and unique coastline and countryside; I was delighted to be able to assist.”

AONB Unit Manager Roger English commented “ AONB gateway signs are a great way of raising the profile of the protected landscape. With 46 AONBs covering just under 1/5th of the UK, they offer a wealth of opportunities for both people and wildlife to benefit from our countryside. And as vibrant, living landscapes, they underpin the economy and the health and wellbeing of our society.  We are extremely grateful to Cllr Hawkins assistance in helping us to deliver this project. “


AONB Gateway signs have already been installed at Avonwick, Diptford, Holbeton,  North Huish, Stoke Fleming, Strete, Slapton, and Wembury. Parishes who are interested in the signs are asked to contact the AONB Unit Tel: 01803 861384 or email diane.lethbridge@ltlite2.co.uk
