Arnside & Silverdale AONB Management Plan 2019-24
The Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Management Plan is a statutory document which sets out a framework of objectives and actions to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the area. It encourages positive action to look after the landscape, wildlife and heritage of the AONB.
The AONB Partnership has reviewed the previous Management Plan on behalf of Lancaster City Council, South Lakeland District Council, Lancashire County Council and Cumbria County Council, with the involvement and input of many partners and stakeholders, and produced a new Management Plan to cover the period 2019-24.
A Final Version of this new Management Plan has been approved by the AONB Executive Committee and submitted to each of the four local authorities to enable them to go through the adoption process. Following adoption by all four local authorities, the Plan will be published as a graphically designed document and submitted to the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
