Local Sites of geodiversity importance are designated by the Norfolk CGS Group, a sub-committee of the Geological Society of Norfolk. CGS (meaning County Geodiversity Sites) is a local rather than a regional designation, and has the same status in planning as County Wildlife Sites. Designation involves surveying geodiversity features of interest, and gaining voluntary agreement with the land owners / managers on beneficially managing those features to retain or enhance their interest. It does not confer any right of public access.
