The North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (established in 1972) is a nationally important landscape covering 668 square miles of Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Hampshire.  Protection, conservation and promotion of the landscape is coordinated by a Council of Partners, a Management Working Group and an AONB Unit of staff, based in Hungerford. 

The AONB Unit is exploring the development of a project focussing on the western side of the AONB and the White Horse chalk-hill figures found there.   This questionnaire aims to gather opinions from local people as to whether there is support for running such a project.  To be able to run the project, the AONB Unit hopes to source funding from grants such as the National Lottery Heritage Fund. 

Please help us by filling in this questionnaire.  Your response will help us shape the project and potentially help us to secure funding. Many thanks.
