Planning for development in or around Cranborne Chase And West Wiltshire Downs
The landscape and beauty of Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs is protected, when making a decision all public bodies and statutory undertakers take into consideration the AONB status of the area and the effect the proposed plan will have on the landscape, flora and species in the area before coming to a decision.
It is important to note the the Cranborne Chase And West Wiltshire Downs AONB (CCWWD AONB) are not a planning authority, and therefore cannot intervene on small applications, and so individual planning enquiries should be taken up with the local planning authority. The CCWWD AONB only acts as an adviser to the local planning authorities, but unlike National Park Authorities, they do not prepare statutory planning documents or determine planning applications.
The AONB partnership are consulted on a variety of planning applications that are likely to have a significant impact on the AONB landscape and features, or which would set a precedent. However, they do not tend to comment on applications which have a limited impact, residential extensions for example.
If you have any queries or questions about how the AONB status of the land may affect development proposals or planning applications, the AONB partnership are obliged to advise you to contact one of the Local Planning Authorities 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...
