Draft Mendip Hills AONB Management Plan 2019-2024 Consultation


28th NOVEMBER 2018 – 16TH JANUARY 2019

Following the recent review of the previous plan we have now entered the formal consultation stage of the Draft Mendip Hills AONB Management Plan 2019-2024. This draft was agreed by the AONB Partnership on 22nd November 2018.

The draft Management Plan identifies what is necessary to conserve and enhance this special landscape. The Mendip Hills AONB Partnership leads on the production and review of the Management Plan for the local authorities.

As required by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (the CRoW Act) the local authorities have a statutory responsibility to review the AONB Management Plan every five years. The Management Plan 2019-24 and subsequent Delivery Plan will then be adopted by the five local authorities.
