The National Association for AONBs
The Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB is one of 46 AONBs in Britain, all designated in recognition of their natural importance and to ensure that they remain 'landscapes for life'.
Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, announced the start of a Designated Landscape Review on Sunday 27 May 2018. This Designated Landscape Review was included in Defra's 25 Year Environment Plan, and will review both National Parks and AONB’s, reporting back in 2019.
