The new English Heritage guide 'Knowing Your Place' deals with the incorporation of local heritage within plans that rural communities are producing, reviewing or updating and focuses particularly on parish plans and village design statements.
It features theAONB Historic Landscape Website and an image from one of our successful planning events.
Helping villages to understand their heritage and fed it into community plans is something this AONB is committed to. We are currently working with North Dorset District Council and the village of Pimperne to see how this process can work in our own landscape. This forms one of the actions in the AONBs Historic Environment Action Plans.
