A new future for the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Dear *|FNAME|*

I hope you are well. I am writing to advise you that the Government has this morning published a Written Ministerial Statement setting out ambitious proposals to create and improve protected landscapes across England. The Written Ministerial Statement can be viewed on the Parliamentary website here
The Government has also issued a national press release and our local Natural England team has published a press release which includes a number of announcements relating to the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 
Firstly, the Government has launched a new Farming in Protected Landscapes programme, which will provide funding to help farmers and other land managers in England based in National Parks or AONBs, to make improvements to the natural environment and improve public access on their land.  The Chilterns AONB is taking part in this important programme and more information can be found here.
Secondly, Natural England, the Government’s advisor for the natural environment in England, has published its ambitious new Landscape Designations Programme. This includes plans to explore a ‘boundary extension’ to the Chilterns AONB and consider new management and governance arrangements to support the improved protection and enhancement of the Chilterns landscape. 

I have therefore included links to the following documents for your reference: 

Chilterns Conservation Board letter
Natural England letter
Chilterns Conservation Board FAQ 
Natural England FAQ
- Chilterns Conservation Board Press release
Do let me know if you would like to discuss any element of the announcement. I am on leave from Friday 25 June to 5 July so would be pleased to arrange a call or meeting on my return.
Best wishes, 

Dr Elaine King
