Arnside & Silverdale and North Pennines Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - Management Plan Review

The County Council, along with other relevant local authorities, has a statutory duty to prepare and review Management Plans for each of the three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) within Cumbria.  This work is delivered, on our behalf, by the relevant AONB Units. The Management Plans have recently been reviewed, to guide the management of the protected landscapes for the period 2014-19.  The Arnside & Silverdale and North Pennines AONB Plans are now finalised. (The Solway AONB Plan is not yet finalised, and will be the subject of a separate report subsequently).

The County Council needs to adopt the Arnside & Silverdale and North Pennines Management Plans to meet its statutory duties.
