    AONBs and Other Considerations

    Many people choose to move to Dorset to enjoy the beauty of its stunning countryside and coastline. It’s therefore not surprising that a large proportion of Dorset is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). AONBs bring their own challenges where new development is concerned. Preserving and protecting special landscape character of the Dorset AONB is crucial. Whiteacre Planning is well-versed in the specific considerations and guidance on the Dorset AONB and can help navigate complex planning issues.
