Public invited to detail how they use Charnwood Forest

Staff in the Department of Geology are part of a group making a bid for funding to improve people's access to and understanding of Charnwood Forest. Dr Annette McGrath is representing the Department in discussions with local partners while Roy Clements, a former lecturer in the Department, is also involved.

Leicestershire County Council (LCC) has agreed to work with a range of local partners to manage and promote the unique cultural and heritage features of Charnwood Forest, through the development of the Charnwood Forest Regional Park.

The County Council and its partners are applying for a Landscape Partnership grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, to be submitted by the end of May 2013.

The partnership are still on the lookout for inspirational ideas that will benefit the heritage of Charnwood Forest and the people who visit or live in the area. You can offer your views by completing an online questionnaire until 1st March 2013.
