Events Code of Conduct

In recent years an increasing number of large-scale events have been taking place in the AONB. To try and ensure that such  events do not have a negative impact on the environment and on other people’s enjoyment of the area the AONB Partnership has produced guidelines with the aim of ensuring that events within the AONB are appropriate, well planned, well located and well organised.

Dates for your Diary

Thursday July 31 2014
With 600,000 people living within 45 mins drive, Black Down is under increasing pressure from erosion. We need help to monitor the level of erosion and will be holding a series of regular monitoring days. If you can spare a couple of hours then why not come along to help measure the erosion scars and take photos.
