A new body has been established to take forward the work of the Landscape Partnership Scheme once Heritage Lottery Funding comes to an end.
Allen Valleys Enterprise Limited is a Community Benefit Society which is itself a form of Industrial Provident Society. It is run by local residents and any income generated will be used to benefit the local landscape, heritage and its residents.
This form of company has the benefit of being able to make share offers to raise money locally for income generating schemes. In our case we are hoping to develop small-scale renewable energy schemes like micro-hydro in order to generated a source of income to look after all our heritage in the future.
More information about Allen Valleys Enterprise and how you might be involved will follow shortly.
