Have your say
Provisional Candidate Area
The Provisional Candidate Area identifies those part(s) of the Yorkshire Wolds landscape which may have the potential to be designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
You can click on the map image below to view an interactive map showing the Provisional Candidate Area in the context of the wider landscape and other, existing designations.
We ran an early engagement exercise in 2022 which gathered views on the Provisional Candidate Map. The exercise used an online or paper form, an app, webinars and drop-in sessions in the Candidate Area and adjacent areas.
Please note that the early engagement exercise has finished.
A3 maps of the Provisional Candidate Area can be downloaded using the following link:

The following presentation, which this runs for approximately 21 minutes, was used in the webinars, providing an overview of the AONB designation process.
Formal Statutory Consultation
The next opportunity for you to have your say is during the formal statutory consultation period currently scheduled for autumn 2023. More details about this process will follow in due course.
