Welcome to the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty 'Have Your Say' consultation

In 2018 we are updating the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Management Plan.

This document guides us on how this nationally important landscape should be managed, conserved and enhanced for years to come. We want to get this right, so we are asking you to answer a few questions to let us know how you view and use the Kent Downs AONB landscape and the main threats and opportunities you see for its future.

The Kent Downs is s special and enchanting place ; it is a landscape of drama and intimacy. The landscapes of the Kent Downs include special distinctive features including dramatic south facing scarps, dry chalk valleys and a network of tiny lanes isolated farmsteads, churches, castles, oasts and orchards, the dramatic white cliffs, ancient woodlands and delicate chalk grassland. The downs are particularly rich in wildlife and there are several species which are largely or wholly confined to the Kent Downs in Britain.

This wonderful, ancient and remote countryside lies close to London and is nearby several large centers of population, making the Kent Downs a much valued and much needed place. While only 93,000 people live in the AONB well over a million live within a kilometre of the boundary.
