Do you love where you live? Come along to a workshop on Binevenagh and Coastal Lowlands area!

Wednesday 3 October 2018

Magilligan Field Centre, Seacoast Road, Limavady

The Binevenagh and Coastal Lowlands scheme along with partners in Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency are eager to hear what makes the landscape special for you and what, if any, your key concerns are?

From the Coleraine Bann to Ballykelly, local people can help by participating in a public workshop at 7:00pm on Wednesday 3rd October in the Magilligan Field Centre, Seacoast Road, Limavady.

The EU Landscape Convention defines a ‘landscape’ as ‘an area, perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors’. Since reform of local government in Northern Ireland, responsibility for undertaking Landscape Character Assessment lays with Local Authorities. The last local landscape character assessment in the Binevenagh area was carried out almost 20 years ago in 1999.

New Landscape Character Areas (LCAs) developed for the Binevenagh and Coastal Lowlands area will be used to develop Heritage Lottery supported projects1 which help to conserve or enhance the local landscape. Projects will focus on the capacity of the landscape to accommodate outdoor recreation, to tell the area’s WWI and WWII heritage and to assist landowners reduce costs and environmental impacts through green infrastructure.

Further info:

HLF has awarded an eighteen–month development grant of £204,200 to enable the Binevenagh and Coastal Lowlands team to develop the five–year project which will be assessed for the full project amount of £3.4 million through HLF’s Landscape Partnership Scheme (LPS). A dedicated office and three–person development team has been established at the Magilligan Field Centre to lead the project.

If successful in securing delivery funding the scheme will explore and enhance the natural and cultural heritage of the area, with a focus on defence heritage, as well as outdoor recreation opportunities.
