Meres and Mosses Landscape Partnership Scheme (LPS) and Nature Improvement Area (NIA)

Description:

The Meres and Mosses Landscape Partnership Scheme (LPS) and Nature Improvement Area (NIA) are two of the most ambitious and significant programmes in recent times for these parts of north Shropshire and south Cheshire.

The Meres and Mosses of Shropshire and Cheshire are a mosaic of wetlands, important for some of the rarest wildlife in the UK.

Organisations including the UK government and the Heritage Lottery Fund, have funded an ambitious programme to improve the value of this landscape for the people and wildlife living in and around it through the implementation of a Nature Improvement Area and a Landscape Partnership Scheme.

Nearly £2m has been awarded to engage communities, raise awareness, conserve and restore key habitats and support landowners to conserve and protect our special wildlife.  

The LPS and NIA programmes complement each other and are being delivered by a partnership of 10 organisations from the charitable, statutory and local authority sectors.  The lead partner and accountable body is Shropshire Wildlife Trust, and the team leading the delivery is based at their offices in Shrewsbury.

For more information, please follow the link to visit their website.
