In every part of our AONB there are amazing things happening that make a huge difference to local communities and positively impact our outstanding landscape. The Acland Award helps us celebrate these initiatives and give them the public recognition that they deserve.
Since 2013, the Acland Award has been presented annually by the East Devon AONB Partnership as a mark of excellence; recognising the best of environmental, economic and community-focused activity taking place within our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
With a new theme each year, the award highlights the range and diversity of local efforts and publicly celebrates the dedication, innovation and passion of outstanding individuals, projects and East Devon enterprise.
