The Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership (CAVLP) is a Heritage Lottery Fund supported programme which aims to conserve, enhance and celebrate the unique landscape and cultural heritage of the Clyde and Avon Valleys.

Now in its fouth year, we are funded until 2018 to deliver over 70 projects with 10 key partners Central Scotland Green Network Trust, Clydesdale Community Initiatives, New Lanark Trust, Northlight Heritage, RSPB Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Wildlife Trust, South Lanarkshire Council and Rural Development Trust.

The scenic beauty of area has been recognised and appreciated for centuries. It is a designated Area of Great Landscape Value where ancient woodlands, orchards, farmland, geological features, historic settlements and country estates mingle together to create a distinctive landscape that is unique in Scotland.

The Landscape Partnership, comprised of nine public bodies and charitable organisations, will work with communities and landowners to identify and develop projects which conserve the natural and built heritage of the area, strengthen the connection between people and the landscape and provide a range of volunteering and learning opportunities in traditional heritage skills and land management practices.

We hope to reinforce distinctive features of the landscape that create this special character through: strengthening the connection between community and landscape by providing a range of volunteering and learning opportunities developing heritage skills and strengthening land management practices raising awareness of the area’s history, culture and importance as a sources of food for Glasgow and the surrounding area migrating the adverse visual effects of recent development and introducing new elements that reinforce the landscape character.
