Local Nature Partnerships (LNPs)
In 2011 the government set out a vision in its Natural Environment White Paper, for ‘Local Nature Partnerships’ (LNPs) to be established across
Lowland Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire Local Nature Partnership (LDNLNP)
Early in 2012 a broad group of environmental organisations across Nottinghamshire and Lowland Derbyshire helped develop a LNP for our combined area, with support from DEFRA. Both the Biodiversity Partnerships coordinators in Nottingham and Lowland Derbyshire gave considerable time and support to this process. Engagement events were organised with others sectors that included health, business, landowners, local communities, education and business.
Ours was one of 50 such groups across the country to then receive formal recognition from government of its LNP status in autumn 2012.
To contact the LNP, please email Rosy Carter, the LNP Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0115 957 8757 or 07721 219 532
