Who are we?

Green halo trees

We bring together businesses, universities, charities and communities to ensure our world class environment in and around the New Forest National Park flourishes as an integral part of our wider area’s thriving economy and society.

The New Forest is one of Europe’s best sanctuaries for nature, situated in the busy south east of England and surrounded by Southampton, Bournemouth, Poole and Salisbury. Beyond the Park’s boundaries, from Cranborne Chase to Purbeck, the South Downs to the Solent, much of this part of southern England is internationally valued because of the quality of the natural environment.

Our Partnership wants to ensure that the natural environment is seen as an integral part of how we work and live. Our ambition is not constrained by administrative boundaries, opportunities can come from all areas and all sectors in and around the National Park – hence the Green Halo.

By recognising the contribution our natural environment makes to the local economy and society, our Partnership wants to ensure that both the Park and its surroundings work to protect and improve that environment.

Our vision is to be a global exemplar of how our most precious landscapes can work in harmony with a thriving, economically successful community.
