Boundary Review of Surrey Hills AONB

We have received details in connection with a Surrey Hills 'Boundary review' for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) being undertaken by Natural England  See> AONB hatched area under consideration which includes the Nutfield Parish area north of the railway line (use the + sign on pdf to enlarge image)

See also the details reported in the Surrey Mirror regarding this review                 SM article Dec 2021 - AONB review

The first phase of the boundary review is to gather evidence about the natural beauty of areas (currently outside of the AONB) which are under consideration. We are liaising with Nutfield Parish Council regarding this project to provide the necessary evidence regarding the area of this parish which is included in the review process.

The formal inclusion of Nutfield Parish area in this AONB boundary will provide added protection against inappropriate development.
