Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

An area of high scenic quality which has statutory protection in order to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of its landscape. AONB landscapes range from rugged coastline to water meadows to gentle lowland and upland moors.  They are different from National Parks because of their more limited opportunities for extensive outdoor recreation.  Natural England has a statutory power to designate land as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.

  • Retrospective planning application for stabling & fencing on AGLV land at Wanborough

    Whilst the Article 4 Direction on the AGLV land at Wanborough is welcome, it has become evident it is less than permanent, apparently being in place for only 6 months.

    As a result of the council's action, a retrospective planning application [18/P/00044] has been submitted for Change of Use for Plot F "from Agricultural to Equestrian for the use of keeping horses for pleasure. Erection of 3 units of mobile field shelters/stables, gate and fencing", rather than agricultural land where only grazing is permitted. On observing the plot, a casual passer-by would find it hard not to conclude the "mobile field shelters" are permanent stable blocks.

    • Lack of proof that "very special circumstances" exist for development in the Green Belt
    • In opposition to the ribbon form of development in the area
    • The requirement to mitigate the impact of development that falls within the 400m-5km zone of the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area
