Partnership Plan

AONB Management Plans are required in law to be produced and reviewed every 5yrs. The East Devon AONB Partnership undertakes this duty for the East Devon AONB on behalf of Devon County and East Devon District Councils. 

Since the first Plan was produced in 2003, significant resources have been secured in conjunction with a wide range of partners to help deliver the Plan and support local communities, amenity groups, wildlife, businesses and the landscape.The 2019-24 Plan has been renamed Partnership Plan in recognition of the way the Plan is delivered - with others.

Hard copies of the Plan are sent to all libraries in and around the AONB and all Parish Councils in the area as well as key partners and the Secretary of State/Defra.
