Dorset AONB 60th Anniversary Fund is now open for Applications

The Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a nationally important protected landscape, with vibrant communities and a wealth of wildlife and heritage.

This year, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Dorset AONB, we have a new Fund available to conserve, enhance and celebrate this outstanding landscape.

Thanks to the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we have £18,000 available in this new Fund.

The Dorset AONB 60th Anniversary Fund can support projects that:

  • Conserve and enhance the natural beauty and heritage of the Dorset AONB.
  • Support the social and economic wellbeing of local communities in sustainable ways that care for the environment.
  • Have the support and involvement of local people or meet a recognised local need.
  • Help deliver the Dorset AONB Management Plan.

The closing date for the Fund in 30th November 2019 and successful applicants will be notified of the outcome before Christmas.
