Local Communities

In June and July 2017 we carried out a community survey through Facebook. This survey gave us a much better understanding of the community we aim to benefit, and of the green spaces that are available in the nine parishes surrounding the Old West River. In particular, we were able to identify what people feel may be needed to help improve these community spaces to ensure the local Fenland wildlife can flourish in the future.

This preliminary community consultation allowed us to formulate the plans of the New Life on the Old West project, ensuring that we are meeting the needs and desires of the communities we hope to benefit.

With this survey information we have been able to make decisions on how best to target the funding through the project, ensuring that we get the most impact for the local wildlife, local green spaces and support for local communities.
