Michael Sydney, Surrey Hills AONB, reports back from Workshop 4 – Resources for Landscape Projects

Resources for Landscape Projects Workshop from Landscapes for Life on Vimeo.

Michael Sydney, Surrey Hills AONB, reports back from the Resources for Landscape Projects Workshop which discussed – How can AONB partnerships ensure that the work they are doing to deliver ecosystem services on a landscape scale is properly resourced both financially and timewise (staff/members/volunteers).
Richard Clarke also shared the other key points from the workshop –

  • 1 – Clarity around restricted and unrestricted income.
  • 2- Partnerships will continue to be vital, particularly as resources become tighter.

Quote from Rob Stowman, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust- “Important to have ‘oven-ready products’; i.e. – things rear to go…”

  • 3 – AONBs already are willing to take risks to secure additional funding.  Whilst local authority partners are increasingly becoming risk averse.  A need to install confidence in authorities.
  • 4 – Working with local authorities can be a double edged sword, but we shouldn’t under estimate the importance in providing cash-flow.
