South Devon environmental organisation seeks opinions
South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty unit is reviewing its five year management plan and wants local people and visitors to the area to fill in a short questionnaire to help shape the new plan.
The aim of the survey is to assess awareness levels of the protected landscape, ascertain how important different aspects of AONB are and develop the priorities of the unit for the next five years.
These include such activities as improving the quality of new development, protecting wildlife and habitats, helping to support a profitable agricultural sector and conserving landscape features like hedgerows.
AONB Unit Project Officer Roger English said “We would like as many people as possible to respond to the survey whether they live in, work in, or visit the AONB. Their views will make a real difference to project development over the next five years.”
The survey is on the South Devon AONB website .
The results of the survey will be used to shape the content of the AONB's Management Plan, which will help to guide activity within the AONB over the next five years. It can be completed any time between now and Sunday 17th March.
For one lucky responder a completed survey will be selected at random to win a prize; “Reflections of the South Hams: Images of the Towns, Countryside and Coastline” containing photographs by Nigel Evans and a foreword by Jonathon Dimbleby, Patron of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
