Have Your Say! 2018 - 2023
Many of you have 'had your say' and told us what you thought are the issues facing the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service and the Lincolnshire Wolds Joint Advisory Committee (JAC - AONB Partnership) would like to thank everyone who took the time and trouble to respond during the initial questionnaire survey and also those who met and spoke to us directly during our summer events. There has been a great deal of work since then and the draft Lincolnshire Wolds AONB Management Plan 2018-2023 went out for public consultation, which ended on 31st January 2018.
We are looking at everyone's comments and input in scrutinising the draft documentation, helping to shape the final Strategy and Action Plan for the nationally protected Lincolnshire Wolds AONB.
Following forthcoming endorsement from the Lincolnshire Wolds Joint Advisory Committee (JAC) and Natural England, the Management Plan will be sent through to our relevant local authorities (LCC, ELDC, WLDC and NELC) for its formal adoption. We look forward to working with everyone to help protect and enhance the Lincolnshire Wolds, crucially promoting and aiding delivery of the many actions and aspirations within the Plan. A copy of the final published Plan will be available shortly.
Stuart Parker, Chairman - Lincolnshire Wolds Joint Advisory Committee adds, "we are working towards a final Plan that will be endorsed by the AONB Partnership and duly adopted by all of our relevant local authorities. It is a Plan for everyone, and the evidence, aspirations, policies and targets set out in the documents will provide a very important tool for informing and guiding the future management of this very special landscape."
Thank you again to those of you who read the draft Management Plan and submitted comments..
