The next step for the boundary review project is for a statutory consultation on the proposed extension to the Surrey Hills AONB. The consultation is statutory with relevant local authorities however Natural England has decided that it should be extended to other stakeholders and the public. Other stakeholders include National bodies, Parish Councils in the existing AONB and in and adjacent to the proposed extension, AONB Partnership members, local businesses and landowning groups, community organisations, recreational interests and the wider public.
The consultation will start on Tuesday 7th March, and will continue for a 14 week period ending on 13th June.
To help people prepare for the consultation, we are running a series of briefing webinars. The purpose of these is help you prepare for the upcoming consultation, with background project information, details of how you can respond, and details of engagement events throughout the consultation period.
