Cheviot Futures hosts visit by Natural England Area Manager

26th, June 2012

On Tuesday 19th June 2012, Cheviot Futures staff Tracy and Jennifer, plus additional representatives of the Cheviot Futures core group, hosted a visit to the project by Adrian Vass, area manager for the Natural England northern area (Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, Co Durham and Tees Valley).

The weather (mostly) held for a packed day visiting headline sites to either side of the project area - including Doddington, Kirknewton, and a number of sites in the Bowmont Valley.

Discussions included the innovative works of the project and their benefit to wider agri-environment application, at both a local and national level, as well as some thinking about the future of the Cheviot Futures approach to land management resilience - e.g. feeding directly towards shaping of future agri environment policy.
