By 2018, the first phase NIA funding has ended, with Government money ceasing in 2015. This concept and vision take these innovative projects to the next level: bigger, better and more joined-up, becoming larger, bolder, more interconnected. Through recognition and support for existing sites and projects, and by identifying critical, areas to create and connect key habitats as landscape—level necklaces, this new vision develops ecological stepping stones and critical environmental nodes in the landscape through which ecological gain can be delivered.
The exemplar of this unconstrained vision extends across a region of approximately 160 square miles, encompassing two UK Government regions and seven local authorities: true landscape-scale conservation. Importantly, the event will stress the need to set the context for re-construction – to understand the past, to inform the present, and to guide the future.

The Celebrating our Woodland Heritage project seeks to identify, record and celebrate the ‘hidden heritage’ of the South Pennines woodlands. It will focus on the heritage treasures within South Pennine woodlands and seek to use traditional and innovative investigation methods, including desk-top research and survey work, and also to bring this story to new audiences using woodland as an exciting platform to engage children and young people in understanding the environment and heritage of their local area through Forest Schools. The post of Woodland Heritage Officer will co-ordinate fieldwork by volunteers and oversee a landscape-scale analysis across the South Pennines working with the University of Bradford. The Officer will work with woodland owners, in particular, Yorkshire Water who are partly funding this post. This project champion will ensure that delivery is of the quality and scope required to assist conservation as well as acting as a ‘broker’ between professionals, enthusiasts and the public.
