AONB Management Plan

The Countryside and Rights of Way (CROW) Act 2000 requires local authorities to produce, adopt and keep under review Management Plans for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Kent Downs AONB covers much of the north of the district and, working with other authorities in the Kent Downs AONB, a review has been undertaken to update the current plan for the period 2021 – 2026.


This report proposes adoption of the reviewed document, which strongly reflects the existing, already adopted plan.
