There was a 12 week public consultation period which closed in January 2020. There were also two public ‘drop-in’ sessions to discuss the Plan with AONB staff on Monday 2nd December 2019 at The Mackenzie Hall, Brockweir, and Wednesday 11th December at the Larruperz Centre, Ross-on-Wye.
The comments and responses to the consultation draft are being assimilated and the post-consultation draft Management Plan will be presented to the Wye Valley AONB Joint Advisory Committee in November 2020 and will be published here. The finalised and adopted Plan will replace the current AONB Management Plan 2015-20.
