Moor than meets the eye Landscape Partnership Scheme

Moor than meets the eye is a £3.8 million Landscape Partnership Scheme comprising 28 diverse community heritage and conservation projects on Dartmoor. The projects are scheduled to be completed within a 5 year delivery plan which commenced in September 2014.


Get involved - Community Stakeholders' Group

There's still an opportunity to join our Community Stakeholders’ Group advising the Moor than meets the eye Landscape Partnership Board of the views of the local community and a variety of user groups in the delivery of the Scheme until the end of 2019.  We are keen to ensure that we listen to community views about the implementation of the projects to ensure a wide and positive impact across the whole area and its hinterland.

Applications will be welcomed from representatives from local communities in and around the Scheme area, and from representatives from user or local interest groups, particularly with interests in the environment, wildlife or heritage conservation, history, recreation, health, young people, volunteering, interpretation, skills and/or business (agriculture, tourism etc).

If you think you have something to offer we'd love to hear from you - see our website for more information and to download an application pack.


Background

The Scheme was created to bring people together to:

*explore Dartmoor’s past
*conserve or restore its wildlife and archaeological heritage
*improve access and understanding of the moor for the local communities and visitors to the area, and
*share the skills required to look after it for future generations.

It offers a diverse range of volunteering and training opportunities throughout the delivery phase.

The Scheme is funded through a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Award of £1.9 million with additional funding of nearly £2 million being made available through the Moor than meets the eye Landscape Partnership (LP) Board.
