Overview - Surrey Hills AONB

The policy relating to Surrey Hills AONB weakens the protections offered, and (unlike previously) does not have restrictions on non-major development. This is a move in the wrong direction. Previously all proposals were considered against the 5 key tests – now development in the AONB seems to be more acceptable.

This is weaker, not stronger, and is contrary to huge responses from the public in previous consultations and the weight of protection given to AONB in the NPPF.
