The National Lottery Heritage Fund has given the green light to a £3.4m Landscape Partnership Scheme led by Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust (CCGHT). The Binevenagh and Coastal Lowlands Landscape Partnership received a letter of offer for the scheme on the 24th March 2020, just one day after the national lockdown introduced in response to the COVID–19 pandemic. The COVID crisis necessitated the furloughing of project staff and resulted in a six month delay to project commencement.

CCGHT and its partners have now reviewed the entire five–year programme to ensure that it is ‘COVID secure’ and where necessary adjustments to proposed project activities have been agreed. This enables CCGHT to proceed with the recruitment of a new 5 person team throughout September and October. This includes a full time Outdoor Recreation Officer (4 years), full time Natural Heritage Officer (1 year maternity cover), part–time Built Heritage Conservation Officer (4 years) and a part–time finance and administration assistance (4 years). Further details on the available positions can be found at www.ccght.org . The new team will be based at the Education Authority’s Magilligan Field Centre and it is hoped that the full team will be in place during November 2020.

Across the five years of the project, the scheme will work with and on behalf of local communities to explore, enhance, conserve, and improve access to the outstanding landscapes and heritage of the Binevenagh area. This includes sites relating to Napoleonic, WWI, WWII, and Cold War heritage features in the Limavady, Magilligan and Castlerock areas. It also involves implementing a more coordinated approach to sustainable public access on land, sea and in the air from Ballykelly to the Bann Estuary. This includes implementation of outdoor recreation masterplans at Downhill Forest and Demesne, and Binevenagh and Ballycarton Forests.

Paul Mullan, Director, Northern Ireland, The National Lottery Heritage Fund said:

“We are delighted to see the Binevenagh and Coastal Lowlands Landscape Partnership officially get underway. This five year programme will have a significant impact on the natural, built and cultural heritage in the area, as well as helping to connect local people with their unique landscape and build more sustainable and resilient communities. As an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Area of Special Scientific Interest, Binevenagh is a rich and diverse landscape which requires special care to ensure its natural heritage is preserved and protected. It’s thanks to National Lottery players, we’re able to support important programmes like this, which will ensure the landscape is better managed and accessible for future generations to explore and enjoy.”
