The Bowland Award 2012

Bowland Award winners

The Bowland Award is awarded annually by the National Association for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (NAAONB) for “the best project, best practice or outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs)”.

To link with the Conference 2012 theme “Shaping nature at a landscape scale”, this year the Board called for nominations for “the best project, best practice or outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty” which promotes landscape scale conservation through partnership working.

Earlier today, it was announced that the Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project (LCSP) is this year’s recipient.

The Award was accepted on behalf of LCSP by Phil Smith from the Environment Agency and Councillor Lewis Strange, Chairman of the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB Partnership. Cllr Strange said “I am delighted to accept the Bowland Award on behalf of LCSP which is a dynamic and progressive initiative that uses best practice in enhancing and raising the profile of chalk streams.

NAAONB Chairman, Cllr Peter Stevens said “The LCSP is a very worthy winner of the Bowland Award and it is fitting that this year’s recipient is a project that has contributed an outstanding environmental contribution to the well-being of the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB actively promoting and delivering landscape-scale conservation through partnership working. I congratulate them on their achievements”.
