The Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership (DVLP) worked on a number projects across the Dearne Valley. These projects sat within four overall themes, please click the links on this page for more information about those themes. The projects were a diverse mix, ranging from the refurbishment of historic structures to grants to local groups, from improvements to paths to wildlife surveys. These all contributed to the overall aims and objectives:
- Conserve, protect and enhance the built, natural and cultural heritage that makes up the unique landscape of the Dearne Valley.
- Enable the community to celebrate the immense value of the Dearne’s heritage, by working with them and other organisations.
- Increase the community’s understanding, use and enjoyment of the existing natural and built heritage by increasing access opportunities and interpretation.
- Boost the economic prosperity of the Dearne by making it a place where people want to live, work and visit, building on the sense of place as a positive, forward looking and innovative community
- Support the local community through providing a range of training, skills and volunteering opportunities.
- Develop a sustainable partnership, with the local community at its centre, to ensure a lasting legacy for the LP and a viable future for the Dearne’s unique heritage assets.
