The AONB Family

landscapes 4 life logoThe special and distinctive landscapes protected by the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty designation are safeguarded for the nation, and together with the National Parks, cover some 18% of our countryside. This protection is not just for the landscape, but includes valuable wildlife, habitats, geology and cultural heritage as well as scenic views.  

The AONB Partnerships work together as the AONB Family through their National Association, to share learning, good practice and cooperation to maintain and conserve their local areas for future generations to enjoy. The North Devon Coast AONB is an active member of the National Association.
