What does the Wye Valley AONB Unit do?

Our job is to make sure the things that make the Wye Valley AONB so special are cared for now and for future generations. We do this by working on projects and initiatives with landowners, local communities, visitors and public, private & voluntary organisations to conserve and enhance the area’s natural beauty. We also raise awareness of the value of the landscape and the natural and cultural heritage within the Wye Valley AONB. We encourage people to learn about the Wye Valley, to visit and enjoy it, helping to improve their health and wellbeing. We also work collaboratively with farmers, landowners, forest owners, rural businesses and local communities to promote sustainable forms of economic and social development.

We work on both long-term landscape-scale initiatives and smaller local projects to achieve the AONB Management Plan. As well as leading on a number of projects we are also involved in other partnerships that relate to the Wye Valley. These include:
