Plans and strategies

Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are regarded as some of Britain’s most treasured landscapes. Along with the National Parks they represent our finest tracts of countryside.

A new era for these areas dawned when the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 established a new framework for their management and protection.

The publication of the Manangement Plan for the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB is the first over arching 5 year strategy for the newly extended AONB which now includes parts of the Dee Valley.  The plan for the first time brings together the special qualities and features of both the Clwydian Range and the Dee Valley and unifies them with a single set of goals.  It identifies those features, across the new AONB, that make the landscape special, from nationally important wildlife habitats to historic monuments, and sets a clear agenda for investment in them. 

But this detailed five-year plan also recognises the landscape owes just as much to the communities living, working and enjoying leisure time in the area as to its physical features. 

It recognises the array of benefits and services the landscape provides for us, essential in our daily lives, and the delicate eco-systems that hold this complex network together.

Only with the engagement of all those concerned, the local communities, farmers landowners, visitors and public bodies, have we been able to agree a vision for the future of the AONB.

Clwydian Range Management Plan 2009-14

Clwydian Range Management Plan 2009-14

The first statutory Management Plan for the Clwydian Range, published in 2004, for the first time, through consultation with local communities and land managers, clearly identified what makes the area special and set a clear agenda for investment in these special qualities and features. This plan builds on that work and looks to strengthen the partnerships needed to ensure lasting and effective change.

This plan also recognises the array of benefits and services the landscape provides for us, essential in our daily lives, and the delicate eco-systems that hold this complex network together. Understanding the contribution the landscape has to make to our economic, social and environmental well being is fundamental to investing in its future.
