£650,000 for outdoor recreation 11 October 2019

DAERA has announced the commitment of £650,000 for projects to make it easier for people to connect with the natural environment

The projects will be delivered by not–for–profit organisations and councils working in partnership with local communities and landowners. 

Announcing the funding, DAERA Deputy Secretary for Environment, Marine and Fisheries Group, David Small said: “We are delighted to support the development of these opportunities to explore, connect with and enjoy our living, working, active landscape across Northern Ireland – our coasts, mountains, farmland, designated sites, suburban green space and rivers. The funding will enable development of 14km of walking trails and recreation infrastructure being created, restored or improved.  In addition it will facilitate development of a website to help scuba divers explore our marine habitats, opportunities for angling and research to shape the future development of outdoor recreation facilities.”

For the Bann Valley Community Group, this will enable the extension of their very well used community path network developed under a previous Environment Fund grant.

Welcoming the announcement, Bann Valley Community Group’s Aidan McPeake said: “Bann Valley Community Group are delighted to have been awarded this grant aid through the Environment Fund. Our Greenway Project has been a huge success so far in creating almost 3.5km of off road, safe pathways to walk, run and cycle through our community. The project initially set out to open up old paths which had been used for children getting to school in years gone by and was enhanced by the addition of new river walks to link up the path network.
