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 Ian Rees.
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 its thirteenth year, we are proud to have funded over 200 local projects, all very different but all with the local landscape at their core.
To get an idea of what we fund, have a look at last year's successful SDF projects.
