Heritage Lottery Fund

Using money raised through the National Lottery, the Heritage Lottery Fund aims to make a lasting difference for heritage, people and communities across the UK and help build a resilient heritage economy. From museums, parks and historic places to archaeology, natural environment and cultural traditions, it invests in every part of our diverse heritage. HLF has supported almost 35,000 projects with more than £5.3bn across the UK.

The Landscape Partnership is funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund’s (HLF) national Landscape Partnership scheme. By funding projects to work at a landscape-scale with local communities and landowners it aims to help more people appreciate the value of natural heritage whilst ensuring landscapes can be more sustainably managed for the future.

The HLF has awarded funding of £1.84m to the Landscape Partnership for the delivery of the 16 projects that together create the Landscape Conservation Action Plan.

The Landscape Partnership will be guided by the nine principal outcomes which the Heritage Lottery Fund wishes to see achieved through the scheme:-
