AONB Consultation

The South Devon AONB Planning Guidance seeks to support and facilitate high quality development in the designated area and its setting that is consistent with conserving and enhancing the special qualities of the AONB, yet also contributes to the sustainable use and management of the areas rich natural and cultural assets.

The Planning Guidance will be formally adopted by the South Devon AONB Partnership as an annex to the South Devon AONB Management plan and will thereafter become a ‘material consideration’ in determining planning decisions.

It is the ambition of the South Devon AONB Partnership that the Planning Guidance is formally adopted by its Local Planning Authorities as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), part of a suite of documents that informs Local Plan policy and practice.

The expected date for publication of the South Devon AONB Planning Guidance is December 2016
