Areas of Outstanding Natural beauty

The government has this week announced plans to create and extend Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, safeguarding more of Britain’s iconic natural landscapes as we build back greener from the pandemic.

  • Britain's natural landscapes bring enormous benefits – enhancing our wellbeing, providing places for living and working communities, and playing a crucial role in the fight against climate change.

  • That is why the government is outlining plans to deliver on our manifesto commitments by boosting nature recovery, launching a new funding programme to support farmers to improve protected landscapes, and creating new Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with proposals to consider the Yorkshire Wolds and Cheshire Sandstone Ridge for protected status as well as extensions to the Surrey Hills and Chilterns areas.

  • By strengthening protection for our natural environment, this will ensure that everyone can access Britain’s most beautiful landscapes and safeguard them for future generations as we build back greener from the pandemic.
