Making the Fens sustainable and resilient!

Our activity to support the enhancement of the landscape includes:

Developing strategic projects for the whole fenland area e.g

  • 'Water resources and storage for farming and wildlife'
  • 'Destination Fens' to develop a strategic approach to developing a network of access for tourism and leisure activity across the fenland area. This activity will support individual partner activity to create the access and link across the Fens and provide opportunities for wider private business and farm diversification activity
  • Promoting the Fens; Our website provides a starting point for visitors to find out points of interest and places to go in the Fens with links to more information on visiting and staying in the area
