Chairmen's Conference 2019 - Introduction
Thursday 28th November 2019
Westminster Suite, Broadway House, Tothill Street, London, SW1H 9NQ
This has been an important year for AONB partnerships and Conservation Boards with Julian Glover’s review taking place, a wealth of opportunities around the delivery of a new environmental land management system, heightened interest in nature revovery and climate change and, of course, the celebration of the 70th aniverssary since the establishment of AONBs.
The recent publication of the Glover review final report with its proposal to strenghthen AONBs with new powers, purposes and resources and to rename AONBs as National Landscapes will, no doubt, stimulate some interesting conversations.
With this in mind, our annual chairmen’s meeting in London will update members on all that has been achieved this year, consider future challenges, and agree a collaborative approach to addressing shared priorities.
