The work of the North Wessex Downs AONB team is led by the AONB Management Plan
The current Management Plan 2014-2019 presents objectives and policies that partners can apply to help conserve and enhance this nationally important landscape. Each year the Council of Partners agrees projects and initiatives that help deliver Management Plan objectives.

Funding is received from DEFRA and the North Wessex Downs AONB's constituent local authorities.
