Impact of the DVLP

Ten years of work by a wide range of local partners culminated in delivery of the Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership (DVLP). After five years of targeted programme investment, it’s time to look at what’s different!
Has the scheme managed to ‘Reveal the hidden Dearne’?

And if it did, how has this changed the area?

Who came along on the journey?
