This space is part of a project to study the process of producing and operating management plans for British Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Three areas have been chosen to begin the work. These are the Gower AONB in South Wales, the Isle of Wight AONB and the North Norfolk Coast AONB. They are similar in that they occupy large stretches of coastline which are major tourist attractions.

The Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers inter-tidal, coastal and agricultural land with a total area of over 450 square kilometres. Stretching from the silt expanses of the Wash in the west (Western Outlier) through the coastal marshes, soft cliffs and hinterland of north Norfolk (Ce)ntral Area, to the dune system at Winterton in the east (Eastern Outlier), it is an area of remarkable beauty, diversity and scientific importance.
