North-West Sheffield Moorland Fringe Landscape Partnership

A Landscape Partnership (LP) focuses on local character and distinctiveness – what makes an area look and feel the way it does – and provides the opportunity for people and organisations to work together to better understand and look after that landscape. The LP identifies, funds and delivers a programme of activities, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. HLF typically award between £1m – £2m to LPs covering an area of anything between 20km2 and 200km2. HLF funds cover 60-70% of the costs of partnership projects, the rest being made up of other funds and contributions in-kind (including volunteer time) from partners.
 
A group of partners, co-ordinated by Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust, are working to become an LP supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). We plan to submit a Stage 1 application to HLF on 31st May. This will include an outline of the partners involved, the projects we would all like to see delivered, detailed plans for the first development year and an outline budget.
