About the DVLP:
The Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership (DVLP) builds on over 10 years of work by a wide range of partners in the Dearne Valley area of South Yorkshire. It is an area of approximately 177 km2 covering parts of the boroughs of Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham.
The DVLP is led by the Arts and Heritage Service at Barnsley Council, representing a broad partnership of the RSPB, Rotherham Council, Doncaster Council, the Environment Agency, Natural England, the Garganey Trust and Groundwork South Yorkshire, amongst others. In June 2014 it was confirmed that it had been successful in securing £1.8m of funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
This five-year scheme, which has been running from June 2014 will focus on the historic buildings and landscapes of the Dearne Valley, working with the local communities to protect, preserve and enhance the area.
