Landscapes and Nature for All

Landscape and Nature for All – Project Overview

The Kent Downs and the PNR des Caps et Marais d’Opale  teamed up with 19 other partners in Kent and France to apply for a €4.7 million funding package to be spent in Kent and the Pas de Calais region in France. The application to the Interreg IVA France (Channel) – England Programme was  approved. The ‘Landscape and Nature for All’ (LNA) project has been funded through the Interreg IVA France (Channel) – England Cross Border Cooperation Programme. This Programme aimed to improve cooperation within the Transmanche region which stretches from Cornwall to Finistère. The project ran from 2008 to 2011 and worked on a series of measures in Kent and Pas de Calais including improved access to the countryside, education events, chalk grassland restoration, woodland management and special projects on adder and bat populations.
