We have been looking at how we might collectively develop a Heritage Lottery Bid to celebrate and enhance Upland Commons. So far we have developed a concept note and circulated it to the partner organisations for comment.

We intend having a workshop session on Commons at the Uplands Conference at Newton Rigg on Wed 13th May. This will be part of the session run by the Uplands Alliance - a new policy lab independent from but supported by Defra.
