Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty renamed Natural Landscapes

From Wednesday 22 November at 00.01 all designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) in England and Wales are becoming National Landscapes, including Cannock Chase which will become Cannock Chase National Landscape. The new name reflects our national importance; the vital contribution we all make to protect the nation from the threats of climate change, nature depletion and the wellbeing crisis, whilst also creating greater understanding and awareness for the work that we do. This is a significant milestone for the UK and the next step in fully realising the National Landscapes’ vision to be the leading exemplars of how thriving, diverse communities can work with and for nature in the UK.
