The Vision for Redesdale

Revitalising Redesdale will:

  • Empower local communities to better understand, conserve and enhance a landscape and natural environment forged by centuries of conflict;
  • Celebrate the unique character of the landscape, its biodiversity and its culture, while seeking to build the future resilience of its heritage and identity;
  • Address the threats to Redesdale’s increasingly fragile natural, historic and cultural heritage, which have been heightened by a declining resident population and economic decline;
  • Ensure the local ownership and involvement of projects and schemes developed by the partnership.
