What we do and why get involved
Involving people in the work of Countryside
Management Partnerships (CMPs) is fundamentally important to our
aims and objectives. Environmental projects with the full
participation of local communities have a better sense of
ownership, can achieve more and are more sustainable into the
future. Whether this is involvement in planning projects,
executing them or just joining in, CMPs work with local people to
deliver projects that make a difference to local green spaces and
the people that use them.
Community tool kits are also available for
groups to loan which contain all the tools needed for practical
tasks such as tree planting, fencing or path clearing. Find out how you can apply.
For those people that get involved there are
benefits too. These can be a sense of empowerment as well as
improvements to both physical and mental well being.
Appropriate access to the countryside and green spaces is actively
encouraged and facilitated by CMPs. So whether it is support
for community groups, centrally managed projects, opportunities to
influence and improve local green spaces or just the chance to get
outside and have a walk with others the local community
is central to the services provided by CMPs.
