Welcome to the Norfolk Coast Partnership
The Norfolk Coast Partnership was set up in 1991 to promote the sustainable use of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Its aims are to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the area, to facilitate and enhance the public enjoyment, understanding and appreciation of the area and to provide sustainable forms of social and economic development that in themselves conserve and enhance the area's natural beauty.
The 2009-14 Management Plan for the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, produced under the requirements of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, guides the work of the Norfolk Coast Partnership through-out this period.
The Norfolk Coast was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1968, under the 1949 National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act. It has a total area of just over 450 km2, which is mainly undeveloped coast and hinterland.
