The West Pennine Moors is an area of ninety square miles of open countryside in Lancashire, comprising a patchwork of moorland, reservoirs, wooded cloughs and historic villages. The area contains a rich variety of natural and cultural heritage which is highly accessible to the surrounding towns and cities.
In 2009, Countryscape was contracted to develop a new 10-year management plan for the West Pennine Moors. This work involved:
The resulting management plan includes background information on West Pennine Moors and its special qualities, analysis of the key drivers for change affecting the area, together with a detailed action plan for implementation (containing strategic visions, objectives and actions).
A copy of the management plan is available on the West Pennine Moors website.
