Petition Give the Royal Forest of Dean an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty)status
The Forest of Dean, 'Britain's favourite Forest', should be acknowledged as an area of outstanding natural beauty. AONB is land protected by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. It protects the land to conserve and enhance its natural beauty.
Please help us protect this unique area.
Despite meeting ALL the official requirements and, the Wye Valley being AONB, the Forest of Dean has still not yet been given this crucial status that it deserves.
The forest is home to a wealth of fungi, flora, fauna and wildlife, including rare species such as the Peregrine Falcon.
The Royal Forest of Dean has won many awards including being recently voted 'Britain’s Favourite Forest'.
We strongly urge you to support this petition to ensure the protection of this unique and ancient area.
