New support for Binevenagh… 3 November 2017

National Lottery support for new Binevenagh Landscape Partnership Scheme (via CCGHT)

 

Today the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) announced initial1 support for a £3.4 million project to the Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust (CCGHT) for the Binevenagh and Coastal Lowlands Landscape Partnership Scheme.

HLF has awarded an eighteen–month development grant of £204,200 to enable CCGHT to develop the five–year project which will be assessed for final approval for the full project amount of £3.4 million through HLF’s Landscape Partnership Scheme (LPS). A dedicated office and three–person development team will be established in the area from January 2018. When the project gains final approval, expected in 2019, five staff will be employed for the five–year delivery phase.

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. The project has been developed throughout 2016/2017 in consultation with partners across the area including environment and heritage groups, community organisations and statutory bodies.   

The development team will consult widely over a period of 18 months with local communities, businesses, interest groups, government agencies and political representatives to develop projects which secure a sustainable future for the areas heritage and connects the area’s:

  • Outstanding natural heritage, which includes six internationally recognised habitats and ten sites of national significance;
  • Wealth of internationally and nationally important Napoleonic, WWI, WWII, Cold War and Troubles era defence heritage features;
  • Unique status as the only area in Northern Ireland where outdoor recreation can be actively enjoyed in the water, on the land and in the air.

Ultimately the project will help develop a better understanding and sense of ownership of these features within the local community, so that the landscape and heritage can be valued and shared by the entire community, across all generations and with visitors to the area.
