High Weald


We have now published our 2016/2017 Annual Review, which sets out the High Weald AONB Partnership’s many activities and achievements over the past financial year.

We are delighted to report that the last twelve months have brought many successes – including building partnerships that have led to several hundred thousand pounds in non-Government support for land management and community projects across the High Weald.

Other key highlights include:

  • Specialist advice given on over 150 planning applications and policy documents
  • Site-specific advice given to 65 landowners
  • 26 landscape restoration projects
  • 45 education events at over 40 primary schools, involving 3,260 learning sessions
  • Production of AONB signage guidance
  • Completion of an English Heritage research contract on the High Weald’s field systems

The document is available to download in PDF format; alternatively, hard copies can be supplied on request.

Finally, we would like to offer our sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to the activities of the High Weald AONB Partnership in the last year. Our work to conserve and protect this nationally-important, historic landscape would not be possible without the substantial efforts of the Joint Advisory Committee and our many partnership organisations, charities and volunteers.

We look forward to working with you all in the coming months to make 2017/2018 an even greater success.
