Bittern Countryside Community Interest Company supports the Arnside and Silverdale National Landscape 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 National Landscape.
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.
Arnside and Silverdale AONB is now the Arnside and Silverdale National Landscape. This is part of the rebranding of all Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
There is a new logo and hopefully some more money to help in the important work done in our area.
Thanks to all who attended our 2023 AGM. The
talk on Forest schools by Karin Kingshott was appreciated by all
and provoked lots of questions.
Save energy, Cut your carbon footprint, Save the environment.
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. These are being updated.
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.
