Brecks Options Study Presentation

The Final workshop for the Brecks Options Study – Findings and Recommendations –  took place on the 5th December.

As anyone who has worked with the BFER team knows, we’re all about collaboration. As such, we were delighted at the excellent turnout and support shown by BFER partners and other key Brecks stakeholders at the latest Brecks Options Study event. The purpose of this week’s meeting was for Alison Farmer Associates to present the shortlist of options and recommendations for how we can continue to work collaboratively and sustainably after the current Lottery funding ends. It was also a chance to gather the opinions of the organisations already on the ground in order to reach a final conclusion. We wanted to make sure the study incorporated an array of voices and opinions on the best option for the future of the Brecks: from environmental organisations, heritage sites and councillors, to community groups, conservationists and individual experts.

Everyone in attendance was keen to learn more and be involved in building on the momentum achieved by the current BFER partnership and the excellent projects that went before. Accompanied by delicious pastries and plenty of teas and coffees, the discussion centred around the preferred way forward including, ‘what’s good about the recommended approach,’ and, ‘which elements would refine it further’?


The study’s recommendations and findings presentation will soon be made available on the project page here: Brecks-Options-Study

We will also provide a summary, and links to the final report in a special edition BFER Christmas Newsletter coming soon.

The next steps for us will be to arrange 1 to 1 meetings with partners and stakeholders. Through collaboration, we will develop a long-term strategy for 2025 onwards.
