Living Wandle Landscape Partnership
Project Category: Public Sector organisation
The Living Wandle Landscape Partnership Scheme is a Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) Project, which aims to deliver a series of improvement projects along the whole length of the River Wandle. The over-arching aim of this scheme is to re-vitalise the Wandle as an identifiable, high quality asset to the communities of south London, through engagement with the natural and built heritage of the river.
The river should provide a healthy, multi-functional landscape with opportunities to involve local people in a range of projects and activities which celebrate the heritage, culture, landscape and biodiversity of the river. The project will seek to establish the Wandle as a defining landscape signature to this part of London and provide opportunities for local people and visitors to explore the river.
On 19th June 2013, the Heritage Lottery Fund announced that the Living Wandle bid had been successful and that a grant of almost £2m had been awarded, for an ambitious programme to be delivered over five years from September 2013.
