I am the Project Manager for The Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership. CAVLP was launched in 2012 and aims to conserve, enhance and celebrate the unique landscape and cultural heritage of the Clyde and Avon Valleys. The scenic beauty of area has been recognised and appreciated for centuries. It is a designated Area of Great Landscape Value where ancient woodlands, orchards, farmland, geological features, historic settlements and country estates mingle together to create a distinctive landscape that is unique in Scotland. The Landscape Partnership is funded until 2017 and is comprised of 10 public bodies and charitable organisations. Together, we work with communities and landowners to identify and develop projects which conserve the natural and built heritage of the area, strengthen the connection between people and the landscape and provide a range of volunteering and learning opportunities in traditional heritage skills and land management practices.
