The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded Cambridgeshire County Council a £10,000 grant to support and develop the work of the Local Nature Partnership.
Phil Clark the Natural Cambridgeshire Coordinator said, “We will use the money to support our work across Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, putting nature and people at the heart of the decision-making process.
The funding will help us to develop a business plan, identify sustainable funding options and run
a programme of events to listen to and work with local residents, business, farmers and developers to seek their ideas and views on how we can ensure the natural environment is both protected and indeed benefits from ongoing growth agenda in the County.
Thanks are due to Pete Johnstone who helped with the initial concept and who put together the Heritage Lottery Fund application together which included talking to most of the partnership to gauge their views on what should be funded.”
