AONB (Area of Outstanding Beauty)

AONBs are national designations. The primary purpose of AONB designation is to conserve and enhance natural beauty. Tandridge contains two AONBs. The Surrey Hills AONB covers much of the northern part of the District, and the High Weald AONB covers the south-eastern corner of the District.

Tandridge has adopted Management Plans for both AONBs.

The Surrey Hills Management Plan 2020-2025

The High Weald AONB Management Plan 2019 – 2024

In addition, both the Surrey Hills and High Weald AONB websites contain other documents, including design guidance for development proposals located in either of these AONBs.
