National Review of AONBs


River is right on the boundary of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the area spreading out to the west of the parish.

Now for the first time in nearly 70 years, the public will have their say on how the country’s most cherished landscapes can be enhanced for future generations.
The public will also have input on whether housing and transport in protected landscapes could be improved, the role they play in our cultural heritage, and how these iconic areas can boost habitats for wildlife.

The evidence will form part of the recently-launched review into protected landscapes – led by Julian Glover. The deadline for responses is 18th December.
