How will the designation process work?

Natural England has appointed consultants to undertake the assessments required for designation. There will be a strong emphasis on collaboration and engagement so that anybody with an interest in the Yorkshire Wolds landscape has an opportunity to contribute to the process.

The Area of Search shown in the map is based on the Yorkshire Wolds National Character area with a loosely constrained, 'fuzzy' boundary, which forms the starting point for the designation work. Please note that the Area of Search is not a proposed AONB boundary and that it is likely only part of the area will qualify for AONB designation.

The project began with a ‘call for evidence’ from Local Authorities and key stakeholder organisations. This ran from the end of March through to the end of April and involved a number of stakeholder webinars, which explained the process and how best to respond with evidence relating to the Natural Beauty and the desirability of designation of the area. This evidence will be used to inform subsequent stages in the process: Evaluation of Natural Beauty and Assessment of the Desirability of Designation.

This Webinar is a part of this 'call for evidence'.
