We are currently in the ‘development phase’ (Development Phase has commenced) of the Ouse Washes LP Scheme (About Ouse Washes LP). This involves research and planning to ensure that the scheme is as effective as possible when the delivery phase begins in 2014.
We will be holding a conference on 5th September 2013 at The Maltings, Ely, where we will be providing an update on the latest developments of the scheme. Topics will include:
The title of this conference, ‘Finding Character and Audiences’ reflects the above topics. As part of the development phase we have been seeking feedback from stakeholders and the wider community, finding out what people value about the landscape and how they might be encouraged to engage further with the landscape and its heritage.
An important element of the conference will be a series of workshops. These will provide an opportunity for discussions surrounding the legacy of the scheme and the future management of this fascinating landscape.
A large focus of the scheme is on community involvement, as this is key to providing a future for the landscape, its heritage and the people who live here.

If you have an interest in the landscape do come along to this free conference, and please pass this on to anyone else you think may be keen to attend.
