YORKSHIRE WOLDS AONB

Natural England is asking for opinions on the landscapes and heritage of the Yorkshire Wolds as they assess its potential for designation as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

 

Whether you live in the area, run a local business, represent a local organisation or enjoy visiting the Yorkshire Wolds, you can give evidence to help inform the potential designation. Local knowledge is needed by Natural England and local councils as they make an assessment.

 

You can share their views online by visiting the newly launched website https://www.yorkshire-wolds-designation-project.org, where an app can also be downloaded. A series of face-to-face drop-in sessions and webinars are being planned where people can find out more.
