The landscape partnership board includes representatives of key delivery and funding partners, as well as those with key strategic input over the areas of work included within the scheme.
The partnership takes a collective responsibility for successful delivery of the programmes. Representatives from each partner organisation met regularly during the development phase to ensure the projects identified in the initial bid were worked up to a robust standard agreed with the Heritage Lottery Fund and oversaw the production of a Landscape Conservation Action Plan, Audience Development Plan and a Volunteer Framework. The partnership continues to meet during the delivery phase of the scheme.

Rachael Gallagher – Our Past, Our Future Project Manager.
