Natural Cambridgeshire business plan

Natural Cambridgeshire are pleased to announce the launch of our new business plan, kindly supported with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. It sets out and ambition and realistic plan for improving the natural environment of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough for the next three years.

We want to see “a Cambridgeshire that has the highest quality of life, because we place nature at the heart of our agenda. A Cambridgeshire which appreciates that to prosper people need a high quality environment in which nature thrives alongside jobs and housing.”

The business plan for the Natural Cambridgeshire:

  • draws agreed direction and preferred options from the Board workshop
  • sets out the organisation’s governance arrangements
  • relates the activities to the outcomes and Vision the LNP is aiming to achieve and meeting clear customer needs
  • sets out a single LNP work programme that aligns existing work streams with HLF funded work outcomes, using the remaining HLF funding efficiently and gaining best value
  • focuses on communication, marketing and funding requirements, and
  • identifies ways for monitoring and measuring success, through qualitative and quantitative indicators, specifying outputs, outcomes and impacts.

Heritage Lottery Fund grant to put nature at the heart

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded us a £10,000 grant to support and develop the work of the LNP. We will use the money to support our work across Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, putting nature and people at the heart of the decision-making process.

This money will help us to develop a business plan, identify sustainable funding options and run a programme of  events to listen to and work with local residents, business, farmers and developers to seek their ideas and views on how we can ensure the natural environment is protected and benefits alongside the ongoing growth agenda.
