Sustainable Development Fund
Landscapes and local people
The Dorset AONB Team is committed to working with local people and organisations to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the area.
The priorities for the AONB are laid out in the latest Dorset AONB Management Plan which sets out what we think needs to be done over the next 5 years to safeguard and celebrate this fantastic landscape.
However, you may also have your own ideas about what makes your area special and what needs to be done - we can help you with advice and sometimes funding to help transform your ideas into action. If you want to discuss your ideas please contact Katharine Wright.
The Sustainable Development Fund aims to get local people thinking about how they can help keep the landscape in great shape for future generations to enjoy. Now in it's 8th year, we are proud to have funded over 135 local projects, all very different but all with the local landscape at their core.
To view a selection of SDF projects we have grouped them together according to type.For the past 2 years we have pulled them together by year, so you get an idea of the range of projects that the SDF funds.
We also have a booklet celebrating the first 3 years of the fund Sustainable Development Fund 961.44 Kb.
