Landscape heritage boost for beautiful Binevenagh thumbnailThe stunning landscape of Binevenagh and the Coastal Lowlands.

THE Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has announced initial support for a 3.4 million project to the Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust (CCGHT) for the Binevenagh and Coastal Lowlands Landscape Partnership Scheme. HLF has awarded an 18 month development grant of 204,200 to enable CCGHT to develop the five-year project which will be assessed for final approval for the full project amount of 3.4 million through HLF's Landscape Partnership Scheme (LPS).
A dedicated office and three-person development team will be established in the area from January 2018. When the project gains final approval, expected in 2019, five staff will be employed for the five-year delivery phase.
The scheme will explore and enhance the natural and cultural heritage of the area, with a focus on defence heritage, as well as outdoor recreation opportunities.
