Have your say on the Lincolnshire Wolds

THE Lincolnshire Wolds has changed over the years, but how would you like it to change – or not – over the coming years?

The Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service wants to hear from you about the future.

The Lincolnshire Wolds was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1973, recognising it as one of the country’s finest landscapes, a designation on a par with our National Parks.

A draft Management Plan for 2012-2017 has been prepared by the Lincolnshire Wolds Joint Advisory Committee (the AONB partnership of 21 organisations) and the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service.

Coun Lewis Strange, Chairman of the Lincolnshire Wolds Joint Advisory Committee, said: “The Lincolnshire Wolds is a hidden jewel of the English countryside. Change is an intrinsic characteristic of the Wolds, but the type, scale and pace of change does need to be carefully managed”.

Now is the time for you to have your say. Will the Management Plan build on the shared vision for the Lincolnshire Wolds? Will it help manage and shape change?

Go to www.lincswolds.org.uk to look at the Plan and fill in a response form.

The final date for written comments to be sent to Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service is November 30 2011.
