Chilterns AONB Management Plan 2014-2019

management plan

The Chilterns AONB Management Plan 2014 – 2019: A Framework for Action was produced by the Chilterns Conservation Board following a review of the 2008 – 2013 Plan and wide public consultation. It contains a comprehensive summary of the key issues facing the AONB and the management policies and actions needed to conserve this special place.

The delivery of the actions in the Engagement Plan section of the Management Plan is not the responsibility of the Conservation Board alone. The involvement of a wide range of organisations is essential in achieving the Plan’s aims over the next five years.
