Norfolk’S Resilient Coast

Funded by the Green Recovery Challenge Fund, the Resilient Coast Project supports communities along the Norfolk Coast AONB to envision and action a plan to care for their environment through a collaborative approach.

Through this project, the Norfolk Coast Partnership will support communities to draft and enact their own nature recovery plans informed by policy, research, and industry best-practice.

In support of these recovery plans, we will deliver a suite of workshops in partnership with Norfolk Wildlife Trust covering a broad range of ecological topics to give residents the hands-on skills needed in nature recovery work (pond restoration, species ID, hedgerow improvement, greening schools etc).

We will also offer £20,000 of small grants funding for community projects, allowing communities and organizations to immediately action these skills, and a further £40,000 of funding for capital works supporting identified priorities within the community nature recovery plans.

This project puts equity of access at its core and will strive to engage with diverse audiences. As such, The Coast Resilience Project aims leave a legacy of content (online worksheets, videos, podcasts etc.) available for communities to access and embark on their own nature recovery plans and projects beyond the scope of the GRCF funding

 Project objectives:

  • Empowered and engaged communities
  • Support for local nature initiatives
  • Improved connectivity within and between communities
  • Improved evidence, data collection and recording

Funded by: The Green Recovery Challenge Fund with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund

Cllr Andrew Jamieson, Chair of the NCP’s Core Management Group, said: “North Norfolk isn’t just home to beautiful landscapes, but also to rare ones too, and this funding will help protect some of the really remarkable habitats right here in Norfolk. These projects will provide new jobs and training, but more than that they will bring together professionals, volunteers and communities to both protect the Norfolk Coast and to help people understand more about the remarkable environment we have on our doorstep. The success of these bids is wonderful news and I can’t wait to get started on these brilliant projects.”
