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.
