Every five years, we review and produce a management plan for the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The time has now come to prepare for our next plan which will guide both our work and the work of others who care for this special place over the next 5 years.

Over the last 6 months we have consulted widely to find out what people value about the Solway Coast AONB and the priorities for those who live, work, visit and look after this special place. We have listened carefully to what people have told us and we are now ready to consult on the draft management plan we have prepared.
It's really important that we gather views from a broad range of people to find out what YOU think of the draft Management Plan, what you think we have got right and what you think we have missed. It shouldn't take longer than 15 minutes of your time and we really do appreciate your opinion.
We would encourage you to download and read the draft management plan before completing this consultation survey, this will enable you to see the context of the specific questions and understand the plan as a whole. The draft Management Plan can be downloaded by clicking here.
