Administratively the Wye Valley AONB is very complex, being the only protected landscape to straddle the border between England and Wales. It covers parts of the three Counties of Herefordshire, Monmouthshire and Gloucestershire, which are each in a different region: the Midlands, Wales and the South West respectively.
Co-ordination of conservation across these political boundaries requires special effort by the AONB Joint Advisory Committee (JAC) and the AONB Unit, working with all partners, including Government bodies and voluntary organisations, that make up the AONB Partnership.
The Wye Valley AONB Unit is based at Hadnock Road, Monmouth NP25 3NG. The AONB Unit is an established team, currently with five full time members of staff.

The role of the AONB staff includes:
