Yorkshire Wolds Proposed AONB
Following an announcement in 2021 that part of the Yorkshire Wolds is being considered for designation as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (see our website note of 25th June 2021), Natural England has now established a dedicated website for the proposal. The announcement comes after the Government's response to the Glover Report into protected landscapes (see our website note of 17th January 2022 for more background).
As part of a process of consultation, members of the public will be invited to submit comments from 6th June.
There are to be various public engagement events in June, in person in Bridlington, Flamborough and Malton on 9 and 10 June, and in more southerly areas of East Riding later in the month; there will also be online events. More detail is available on the project website.
