Case study: research for the Heritage Lottery fund - evaluating the landscape

The Heritage Lottery Fund awarded a £60,000 contract to Birkbeck's Centre for European Protected Area Research (CEPAR), to evaluate their headline Landscape Partnerships programme.

Landscape Partnerships involve up to £3 million of Lottery money, alongside matched funding, and aim to deliver benefits to natural and cultural heritage in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, such as the Cotswolds, as well as other disadvantaged areas and the urban fringe. 

CEPAR worked with local partnerships to develop new measures of success for schemes, so that long-term benefits to the community carry greater importance.
