Natural England Designations Strategy July 2012 (NE353)

Natural England has a major role to play in the way our most precious landscapes, geology and wildlife are protected. We are responsible for designating landscapes and notifying new sites for protection – these include Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, National Parks, National Nature Reserves and National Trails – as well as amending the boundaries of already existing protected areas. We also advise Government on international and marine designations. The Designation Strategy helps to deliver the aims of the Natural Environment White Paper and look at ways that protected areas can support ambitions to create more integrated networks to support England’s landscapes, geological features, and important wildlife habitats.
