‘Heart of Ancient Ulster’ Landscape Partnership Scheme
The ‘Heart of Ancient Ulster Landscape Partnership Scheme’ has been created with Heritage Lottery funding to conserve and protect the Lower Sperrin plateau.
The scheme has the potential to benefit from a Heritage Lottery grant of £2M over 5 years to deliver a series of projects which will conserve and protect 144km2 of outstanding prehistoric landscape and reconnect the local community to its unique natural, built and cultural heritage.
Among the projects proposed for delivery by The Heart of Ancient Ulster Landscape Partnership working with Mid Ulster District Council, and various statutory bodies is the restoration and maintenance of over 25,000 hectares of blanket and raised bog, the recruitment of volunteers to help plant 100,000 native tress, the reduction of carbon emissions from the peatland and the creation of 10km of new heritage trails.
The deadline for receipt of expression of interest forms has now closed.
