Bittern Countryside Community Interest Company supports the Arnside and Silverdale AONB Partnership
and the Landscape Trust
Who we are, what we do
The Bittern Countryside Community Interest Company was formed to carry out activities which benefit the community, and in particular to work to conserve and enhance the Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Our shareholders and volunteers:
If you think we could help you in a community or conservation project please contact us. Is there something that needs doing that would fit in with our aims? We may not know unless you tell us.
We have had to cancel our March 2020 AGM but our financial report and the chairman's report are available on the REPORTS & DOCUMENTS page. We hope to hold our AGM later in the summer if at all possible.
Our New Project.
Why not join us? You would be very welcome.
These are some of the strands to our work at the moment
Low Carbon Initiative
We have helped several of our local community buildings install solar PV systems. We shared the costs of the installation and now share the Feed-in Tariff with the community building.
We have produced energy saving booklets to help people use wood efficiently and are helping with a local woodbank initiative
We have given our first grant to a local community building to help them instal LED lighting.
Conservation of our flora and fauna
We have produced a series of 14 books to help people find and enjoy the plants and wildlife that make our AONB special
We are also working with others in the AONB to make sure our rarest species can flourish.
All the reserves in the AONB depend on grazing to stay in good heart. We are there to help this in any way we can.
We keep an eye on local land sales and see if we can help any of our conservation partners if a prime site for a reserve comes up.
We also keep an eye on planning matters and send in comments if we feel that a development proposal is detrimental to the AONB.
