Event description

Description


This free event is possible with kind support from Renew Wales

More and more community organisations are taking over the management of valued community greenspaces. Understanding the site, deciding how it should be managed and how to go about delivering that management are essential elements and often daunting for community groups. These elements are drawn together into a site management plan that provides a clear guide to how the site is managed and why. Good management plans help to develop priorities, resolve conflicts, make best use of limited resources and are often essential for grant applications.

The Green Valleys CIC, with the support of Llais y Goedwig and Renew Wales, are offering a free training session for community groups that need to develop management plans for greenspaces. Much of the focus will be on community woodlands but topics like wildlife, public access and decision-making will be common to other sites like parks and orchards.
