Glorious Gardens Stakeholder Workshop
Stakeholder meeting about the conservation of designed landscapes
This workshop is an introduction to the next phase of the Glorious Gardens project, the needs and challenges for conservation of historic landscapes, and the needs and aspirations of landowners. Discussion will cover the scope and structure of a Conservation Strategy and Landscape Conservation Guidance Note, and how various stakeholders (landowners, public bodies, conservation volunteers) might find them useful.
The Glorious Gardens team will develop a Conservation Strategy and practical Landscape Conservation Guidance Note for landowners of designed landscapes in collaboration with local stakeholders, including landowners, Glorious Gardens volunteers, heritage groups, and people involved in land based industries such as farming and forestry.
The Strategy and Guidance Note will outline good practice in the management of designed landscapes, the tasks involved, and information regarding possible sources of grant funding.
This is the second phase of the Glorious Gardens project, following the research and reporting on the designed landscapes of the Clyde and Avon Valley by volunteers, which you can view below.
This workshop is part of a series of three workshops:
