Welcome to the Norfolk Coast Partnership web site

The Norfolk Coast was designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) in 1968. The Norfolk Coast Partnership was set up in 1992 to promote conservation and enhancement of the area's unique natural beauty; to facilitate and enhance public enjoyment, understanding and appreciation of the area's natural beauty; and to promote sustainable forms of social and economic development that in themselves conserve and enhance the area's natural beauty.

Current Projects

The Norfolk Coast is a unique area of remarkable beauty, diversity and scientific importance.

What we see today is a result of the interplay of environmental influences on the area over millions of years.
