Making the Fens sustainable and resilient!

Our approach is carried out by the partnership and as individual partners through their networks and activities include:

  • Engagement with Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and other strategic bodies raising the Fens profile and awareness of needs and benefits gained at strategic levels
  • Encourage inclusion of activity to support Fen land management and biodiversity in the New Agri-environment Schemes for 2014-2020
  • Encourage and promote inclusion of wetland and Fen habitat in Area Mineral Plans
  • Consider approaches to get strategic area restoration plans in place
  • Engage with relevant planning proposals to ensure biodiversity enhancements and gain are secured through the planning system
  • Key messages are identified and used to increase recognition for and awareness of the Fens and a key communication channel for this purpose (the website) is in place
