Visitor Management Task & Finish Group

Task and Finish Groups are topic specific groups set up to ensure specific projects and assigned tasks in the AONB Management Plan are delivered.  Task and Finish Group topics will be flexible to respond to different opportunities and projects that present themselves.

The Visitor Management Task and Finish Group comprises a wide partnership of local authorities and conservation organisations, community and interest groups.  Its aim is to support delivery of visitor management actions, working with other Task and Finish Groups, and to feed into development of future Management Plans and determine action priorities. There is a clear focus on improving co-ordination and communication of visitor activities, advertising and promotion, including working with the Cannock Chase Special Area of Conservation (SAC) Partnership to deliver projects appropriate to the conservation of both AONB and SAC.  Current projects include developing the role of the Visitor Centres and delivering car parking and interpretation strategies for the Chase.
