Planning controls and the implementation of planning policy has a significant role to play in the conservation and enhancement of the landscape and its wildlife.
They are also important tools in ensuring appropriate development is linked to the social and economical well-being of the communities living in the AONB.
The AONB Partnership has no statutory role in planning but it does engage in planning consultations through the AONB Team under an agreed protocol with Devon County Council and East Devon District Council. We use a landscape character based approach to our involvement in planning and policy work.
Advice and consultancy work
As a result of increasing demand we have developed policies on how we will deal with approaches for advice on planning and development and consultancy work. Please see our Planning and Advice page.
