Attending the Sowing Seeds LAG this evening where the Cranborne Chase AONB are presenting their bid for a countryside centre

Sowing SEEDS covers the Community Partnerships Executive North Dorset (CPEND) area of North and East Dorset and the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), who working together originally secured £2.85 million (as a result of a national review on all LAGs during 2011, the revised programme allocation is now £1.944M for the lifetime of the programme) to improve the economic wellbeing of the area with funding available until the end of 2013. The funding is being delivered through the Local Action Group, a Group that wants to support your project ideas.

The AONB team, with the support of the AONB partnership, have assessed the feasibility of creating a multipurpose ‘countryside centre’ that would provide vocational training courses, special interest courses, environmental education, volunteering opportunities and a range of visitor opportunities to explore the surrounding countryside and are biding to Sowing SEEDS for this finance.

Wyvern Heritage and Landscape Consultancy have been aiding the AONB in putting together the funding bid for this project and gathering evidence.
