The Bright Water Landscape Partnership is a Heritage Lottery Fund supported project that will reveal, restore and celebrate the heritage of the Bright Water area. This includes its built, natural and cultural heritage. The project will run from June 2018 for 4 years, and by its close will have invested over £3.2m in our heritage. The Bright Water Landscape Partnership is led by Durham Wildlife Trust on behalf of the wider partnership, which includes - Environment Agency, Darlington Borough Council, Durham County Council, Tees Rivers Trust, Groundwork North East and Cumbria, Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland and the Local Access Forum. Local community groups and individuals have also played an important role in developing the Partnership and its projects During June and July the Partnership will be recruiting its staff and seeking to appoint an independent chair and community representatives for the Board. Keep checking the website for information on these opportunities and wide range of projects volunteers and the public will be able to participate in.
