Demand for information in the Bright Water area

Bright Water covers an area of approximately 200km2 within lowland County Durham and Darlington, focusing on the River Skerne catchment from Hurworth Burn reservoir to South Park in Darlington. The project area includes the communities of Newton Aycliffe, Sedgefield, Bishop Middleham, Fishburn, Heighington, Brafferton, Barmpton and Darlington.
The vision of the Bright Water Landscape Partnership is to reveal a heritage of change and innovation, supporting opportunities to enhance and enjoy the natural, built and farmed landscape, realising gifts for now and the future, raising aspirations and inspiring communities.

 To achieve this vision the partnership will aim to:

·Work with landowners, local communities and other partners to restore and enhance key elements of the natural, built and cultural landscape

-Highlight the cultural heritage of the area, a story of innovation that has shaped the modern world – from the birth of the railways to the Durham Ox

-Provide opportunities for learning and training, ensuring the heritage of the area is better known and conserved

-Enable more people to access the heritage of the landscape, helping to improve health and well-being
-Provide new opportunities for businesses, making them more resilient in the future.

Groundwork North East and Cumbria have been commissioned to undertake a Learning, Training and Volunteering Study to identify the demand for such opportunities from both the public and local business.  Therefore we would be
extremely grateful if you could complete the short survey
