As a vital part of the Nevis Strategy, The Nevis Partnership secures funding for, and subsequently oversees, a wide variety of projects impacting on the whole Nevis area. With all projects, a major priority is the balance between conservation and protection of the environment and enhancement of the visitor experience.
Nevis Landscape Partnership Com-páirteachas Tire Nibheis
The Nevis Landscape Partnership is a collective response to land management from local and national environmental organisations, charities and community groups. All share a common interest in securing a sustainable future for Ben & Glen Nevis. A unifying aim for the collective is to lever much needed investment into the area to ensure economic vitality, a healthy environment and a vibrant society. The programme began in 2014 and will finish in March 2019.
The Nevis Partnership will manage the core fund of the projects and from an operational and management perspective we will become Nevis Landscape Partnership for the duration of the projects with an increased membership and wider range of specialist advisers and organisations. Delivery of individual projects will either be managed by the six core staff employed by The Nevis Partnership or by a delivery partner leading the project.
The Collective Co-uallach
The Nevis Landscape Partnership is a culmination of over ten years of collaborative work in the area. In 2012, we were awarded a Stage One approval by the Heritage Lottery Fund and submitted our Stage Two application in January 2014. In June 2014, Heritage Lottery Fund awarded Nevis Landscape Partnership £3.9 million to deliver nineteen projects over five years. These projects are currently being lead by a team of seven Nevis Partnership employees and the working partners John Muir Trust, Scottish Natural Heritage, Forestry Commission Scotland & the Highland Council. Supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and using a collective approach to managing the landscape these projects will unlock social and financial resources that would otherwise not be available to the community. The core-staff are currently working to deliver these projects and will continue to do so until 2019 when the scheme is due to end with all outcomes delivered.
