What have we done so far?
Established the function of the land use group is to act as a network to support and enable local projects in the following areas:
- Tree and hedgerow planting projects - grants to apply for and how to set up tree / hedgerow projects.
- Tree protection - understanding the regulations and how to defend our trees
- Life lines projects- encouraging community interaction, investigating the use of herbicides / pesticides and alternative practices
- Wildlife restoration networks / corridors
- Food production - sustainable local production methods.
What are we doing right now?
- Focusing on tree and hedgerow projects as grants are available now and need to be applied for.
- Establishing a data base of information links.
What’s next/future plans?
- Focus on sustainable food systems
- Continue to gather data on the different aspects of Land Use related projects
- Future plans / visions:
- The Great Dorset Hedge
- Clean Rivers and Seas
- Locally produced food without plastic packaging
- Trees genuinely protected
- Farming without reliance on pesticides and herbicides
Interested in getting involved?
We need help with submitting info onto a database (call Julie 07791741687)
Experts in mapping would also be useful as map analysis is a useful basis for many land use projects.
