Extension of Dedham Vale AONB
The application is on the short list, there is no indication yet when it will be considered by Natural England. It may well be several years off. This reinforces the need to ensure that nothing happens in the meanwhile to prejudice its success. The Project commissioned a very useful report from Alison Farmer evaluating suitability of the area between Bures and Sudbury for AONB status. Indeed it was this report which helped to get the Bures development proposal overturned. If you haven’t already done so, do please complete the Project’s survey to show overwhelming support for the extension, necessary to get this application promoted up the short list.
