Outstanding Landscapes in the Future - Survey
We are proud of our two nationally designated and important landscapes and would like to invite you to share your knowledge of them to future decision making regarding the conservation and enhancement of Dedham Vale and Suffolk Coast & Heaths Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs).
We are producing a “State of the AONB” report for our landscape in 2019, and as part of this we are seeking views from people living and working in the area and those that visit these outstanding landscapes.
We would like to hear from as many people as possible, and the survey should take about ten minutes to complete: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/AONBSurvey. The survey is open until Friday 11 January 2019.
Dedham Vale AONB is an exceptionally picturesque lowland landscape covering a 90km2 area, which follows the River Stour inland from Manningtree along the Suffolk-Essex county border. Made famous by the 16th-17th century painter John Constable, the landscape is composed of rolling hills, valleys, riverside habitats, arable agriculture and associated villages. This area has remained remarkably free from development and still holds many traditional rural features and characteristics.
