Chilterns AONB Management Plan

The CCB has a statutory duty to publish a Management Plan for the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and to promote its implementation by a wide range of organisations, including local authorities, government agencies, community groups and landowners.


The Chilterns AONB Management Plan 2019–2024: Caring for the Chilterns forever and for everyone, was produced by the Chilterns Conservation Board following a review of the 2014–2019 Plan and wide public consultation. It contains a comprehensive summary of the key issues facing the AONB and the management policies and actions needed to conserve this special place.

The delivery of the actions highlighted in the Management Plan is not the responsibility of the Conservation Board alone. The involvement of a wide range of organisations is essential in achieving the Plans aims over the next five years.
