Living and working

The interaction of people with their environment over thousands of years, resulting in living and working landscapes that respond to environmental, social and economic changes, has made the area what it is today.

This section of the web site represents two sections of the AONB Management Plan, looking at the interaction of people with its natural beauty.

In order to conserve these qualities that we value, we need to ensure that viable businesses are possible at the same time as managing the area and using what the sea provides in a way that is sustainable and which conserves the landscape and seascape qualities, habitats and species which contribute so much to the area's unique character.

Farming, forestry and fishing (section 4.2 of the plan) deals with the key human activities that depend on, manage and use the natural environment.
