We can highlight the achievements from both 2021 & 2022 in the images attached.  It’s encouraging to see that even with the challenges of the pandemic we still managed to complete an impressive number of actions.  This wouldn’t have been possible without collaboration between our partners.
It’s difficult to fully represent the extensive commitment #causewaycoastandglens has produced with the 5 year Action Plan, in partnership, for the Causeway Coast AONB & Giants Causeway & Causeway Coast Word Heritage 
It’s ongoing to 2025, but in the meantime have a look at examples of achievements.
We have dedicated sections on our website that you can read more about each AONB area.
