Welcome to the Norfolk Coast Partnership
The Norfolk Coast Partnership was set up in 1992 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.
Ideas to help you enjoy the unique natural beauty of the area and play your part in keeping it special.
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.
