To provide a joined-up approach for delivering bespoke land management advice for the Brecks’ riparian landowners.
There are currently 5-6 different organisations delivering, or seeking to deliver valuable, area specific advice to landowners and, managers in the project area.
There is a great need to review the mechanisms for providing advice and establish a joined-up approach where there is one hub to go for specialist and technical environmental advice.
There are currently numerous organisations seeking to deliver valuable, area-specific advice to landowners and agricultural managers, and a great interest in reviewing the mechanisms for providing advice using a mutually inclusive approach. Because of the special nature of the Brecks, it provides a unique set of needs and issues for land managers that are not being met by current provision.
This project will develop a steering group with partner organisations, to pilot a scheme delivering over 3 years, a joined-up bespoke land management advice that adds value to existing stewardship, at a significant time of change.
It will create a legacy of landowners more aware of the natural heritage assets they manage, more able to access support and funding to manage those assets, and a network of advisory organisations more able to work effectively in partnership to deliver bespoke advice in the Brecks Landscape.
