As an example, the Norfolk Coast AONB is organised through a Partnership Forum consisting of representatives of organisations or interests that have a role in developing and implementing statutory and non-statutory plans and policies that affect the AONB and/or have a role in management of land in the AONB, plus representatives of the local communities. It meets at least twice annually. In addition to CMG members, it consists of officers or other representatives of:
a. Countryside Agency
b. Norfolk County Council
c. North Norfolk District Council
d. King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council
e. Great Yarmouth Borough Council
f. Norfolk Wildlife Trust
g. National Trust
h. Royal Society for the Protection of Birds
i. English Nature
j. English Heritage
k. Environment Agency
l. Country Landowners’ and Business Association
m. National Farmers’ Union
n. East of England Tourist Board
o. Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
p. Norfolk Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group
q. East of England Development Agency
r. Five representatives elected by the Parish Councils in the area
s. One representative of common rights holders in the AONB
t. Representatives of any other management interests relevant to the area or operation of the AONB considered appropriate by the officers of the Core Funding Partners. Such invitation may be either permanent or to specific meetings when an agenda item particularly warrants attendance. A clear balance for the efficient functioning of the Partnership Forum will be considered between the need to have all appropriate interests represented and the need not to make the Partnership Forum unwieldy.
