Transforming the Trent Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme was launched in April 2019 having received a grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund to deliver a multi-million pound scheme across five years. Additional funding is being contributed by other funders and our partners, through cash contributions and in-kind support. The scheme will cover a 200km² area of the Trent Valley from Rugeley, through Alrewas and Burton-upon-Trent towards Derby, the River Tame from just north of Tamworth to its confluence with the River Trent at Croxall, and the Dove River Valley between Derby and Uttoxeter.
Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is the leading nature conservation body in the county and a registered charity. It protects and enhances our wildlife and wild places and promotes involvement, enjoyment and understanding of the natural world. With the support of 16,000 members, it manages 30 sites covering over 3,500 acres including sites of international, European and national importance. As part of The Wildlife Trusts, the Trust is the local face of the largest organisation in the UK concerned with the conservation of all forms of wildlife.
Using money raised by The National Lottery, we Inspire, lead and resource the UK’s heritage to create positive and lasting change for people and communities, now and in the future.
The Central Rivers Initiative was established as a partnership in November 1997. The project aims to secure a multifunctional end use for sand and gravel extraction sites in the sub region, and to integrate the sites into landscape scale management of the river valleys.
In November 2016, the Central Rivers Initiative partnership successfully secured a grant from The National Lottery Heritage Lottery Fund to develop an ambitious scheme focussing on the River Trent and its tributaries the Tame and the Dove.
The final application was given the green light in December 2018.
