Northumberland Coast AONB Management Plan 2014-2019
Local Authorities have the primary responsibility for the conservation and enhancement of AONBs.
The duty under section 89 of the CRoW Act, to produce a plan giving policies for the management of the area, also falls on the Local Authorities for the area covered by the designation.
Although the plan is specifically for the Council to set out its policies and how it will carry out its functions, it will also help other public bodies to fulfil their obligations by clearly setting out the special qualities of the AONB and the sort of changes and pressures that could harm these.
More widely, it will be of interest and value to any organisation whose work is within or could affect the AONB.
