Annual Review 2016-17
This year, making strong connections between local people and their OUTSTANDING local landscape has helped us develop healthy landscapes for all to enjoy.
Working with local businesses, landowners and communities has been central to a successful year. Made possible by support from Defra and local authorities, all our work this year helps deliver the statutory Dorset AONB Management Plan.
We know that pictures speak louder than words, so this Annual Review showcases some of the entrants to our recent Site Seeing photo competition – a reminder that all our work helps keep the Dorset landscape looking very special too!
