AONB Position Statements

As part of its commitment to conserving and enhancing the AONB, the AONB Partnership has agreed to develop positions on key issues affecting the AONB. Developing these positions is an action within the AONB Management Plan.

Please note: AONB Partnership Position Statements reflect the collective view of the AONB Partnership on key issues that affect the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB. They do not necessarily reflect or concord with the positions or policies of the individual Partners outside of the specific AONB context. These position statements are agreed as an AONB Partnership position only.
