Lincolnshire Wolds AONB Management Plan 2013 – 2018

The Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service (LWCS) has co-ordinated the Management Plan review on behalf of the JAC partnership.

The Plan is a formal review of the original 2004-09 Management Plan and is a statutory document which, in accordance with government legislation (Section 89 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act, 2000), has now been formally adopted by Lincolnshire County Council, East Lindsey District Council, West Lindsey District Council and North East Lincolnshire Council.  In addition the Plan has formal approval from all the relevant statutory consultees: the Environment Agency, English Heritage and Natural England.  

Due to changes in legislation since the production of the last AONB Management Plan the review process has involved the completion of a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), which has been produced by Mouchel consultants on our behalf.  The SEA is a technical document which serves as the Environmental Report for the updated Management Plan. It sets out the environmental baseline and provides a strategic assessment of the options and alternative courses of action. This ensures any adverse environmental effects are avoided or mitigated for whilst maximising the opportunities for securing positive outcomes. The preparation of the SEA has been undertaken in parallel with the Management Plan review and has helped to refine proposed changes to the revised objectives, policies and actions. The SEA has been prepared in consultation with a range of statutory agencies and relevant local authorities.
