Planning for development in or around the Cornwall AONB
Cornwall AONB areas have the same level of status and protection as National Parks, therefore all planning applications on land that has been designated an AONB are assessed for the impact the development will have on the landscape, before being approved.
The Cornwall AONB works closely with Cornwall Councils's Planning Policy team on AONB applications, and with a number of AONB Parishes on applications in their respective areas.
In 2009 the six district Councils of Cornwall became a unitary authority, the Cornwall Council. This authority prepares statutory planning documents and determines the outcome of Planning applications based on the impact the proposed application will have on the current AONB Management Plan, and the impact it will have on the surrounding landscape.
If you have any queries or questions about how the AONB status may affect development proposals or planning applications, the AONB partnership are obliged to advise you to contact the Cornwall Planning Authority for direct advice...
Needless to say, if you are unsure about how your proposal may be affected, we would encourage you to take advice from a local, independent planning expert before approaching the council...

That said, large, unique extensions and complete 'one off' domestic overhauls really do float our boat... so please get in touch!
