As we celebrate 50 years as an AONB, we would be grateful if you could spare a few minutes to fill in this questionnaire. Your answers are important to us and will help the Partnership to prepare the next statutory Management Plan for the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB, and how we can all help protect and enhance the special qualities of the area. A map of the AONB boundary is below. For a more detailed map please visit Interactive Map of the UKs 46 AONBs and zoom in.
Deadline for responses is 10th December 2023.
Note: The Lincolnshire Wolds Joint Advisory Committee (JAC), as the formal advisory body for the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty can confirm that it has taken the decision, on behalf of all relevant local authorities (Lincolnshire County Council, East Lindsey District Council, West Lindsey District Council and North East Lincolnshire Council), to delay the production of the next Management Plan and save all current policies and objectives within the current Lincolnshire Wolds AONB Management Plan 2018-23), pending its further review.
This delay is formally actioned in response to the notification letter from The Rt Hon Lord Benyon, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State - Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs of 7 July 2022, informing all Protected Landscape Management Plan Partnerships of the option to put on-hold (as required) the usual five-year Management Plan review and publication cycle. This offer has been made to give Partnerships time to assess and take account of a series of significant changes being brought about through the government’s ongoing response to the Landscapes Review – and is to include the publication of a new Outcomes Framework and an accompanying new Management Plan guidance document (both still pending).
