The South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Planning Guidance document is now open for consultation until midnight on Tuesday 16th August 2016. 

The proposed eight sections of Guidance are available for viewing and downloading from the documents list found on the AONB website AONB Planning Guidance  Having read the document in full, or the sections that are of most interest, participants are requested to complete and submit a consultation response to provide their  feedback using our smartsurvey survey form.

All feedback will be collated and used to inform the final version of the Planning Guidance. A report on the consultation feedback will be available through the South Devon AONB website.

The unit has also arranged a  Planning workshop as an opportunity to get involved in shaping the guidance. It is  aimed particularly at Parish Councils, Town Councils and Neighbourhood Plan Groups across the South Devon AONB. This will be held on Thursday 11th August from 6.30pm9pm at Kingsbridge  Community College Library.  Anyone wishing to attend is asked to email or call the AONB team on 01803 861384


AONB Manager  Roger English commented: “ We hope that people will take the opportunity to attend this workshop in order to discuss the subject of planning and the AONB. It is a challenge to balance the social and economic needs of our communities whilst safeguarding local distinctiveness and conserving the AONB landscape, and we welcome everyone’s views.”
