Landscapes for Life
Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) are some of the UK’s most cherished and outstanding landscapes.
The Wye Valley AONB Unit, the small team of dedicated staff based in Monmouth, carry out collaborative projects, working with organisations and individuals in the Wye Valley AONB. A selection of our current and past projects and partnership initiatives are outlined below.
If you have an idea for a project that will help conserve or enhance the landscape and natural beauty of the Wye Valley AONB, and/or the enjoyment and appreciation of it, please get in touch. We may be able to advise you on developing your project proposal and signpost you towards potential funding, or we may be able to work in partnership and bring others together to help turn your ideas into reality.
With our partners, we run a number of projects that help to conserve and enhance the AONB’s cultural and natural heritage. This work covers:
