AONB

Ausgeschrieben: 
Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Beschreibung: 
...is a precious landscape whose distinctive character and natural beauty are so outstanding that it is in the nation's interest to safeguard them. There are 38 AONBs in England and Wales (33 wholly in England, 4 wholly in Wales and 1 which straddles the border). Created by the legislation of the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act of 1949, AONBs represent 18% of the Finest Countryside in England and Wales. Their care has been entrusted to the local authorities, organisations, community groups and the individuals who live and work within them or who value them. Each AONB has been designated for special attention by reason of their high qualities. These include their flora, fauna, historical and cultural associations as well as scenic views. AONB landscapes range from rugged coastline to water meadows to gentle downland and upland moors.

Ausgeschrieben: 
Ecological Compensation Areas
Beschreibung: 
The purpose of ecological compensation areas is to supplement conservation areas with small-scale habitats for plants and animals in the cultural landscape with the aim of contributing to landscape diversity and at the same time supporting natural species diversity, avoiding the loss of species, and allowing endangered species to re-establish. Ecological compensation contributes to the maintenance of valuable habitats which no longer allow for economic agricultural production.
