Angus Rural & Environment Partnership

Description

The Angus Rural and Environment Partnership (AREP) is charged with ensuring the delivery and monitoring of various objectives and actions as agreed by partners and the Angus Community Planning Partnership.

The partnership requires the ability to influence other ACPP Thematic Groups and individual ACPP members on the delivery of outcomes which have specific rural or environmental implications.

The Angus Rural and Environment Partnership will be responsible for the management and monitoring of the following outcomes contained within the Angus Community Planning Partnership's Single Outcome Agreement for 2009/12:

  • Outcome 10: We live in well-designed, sustainable places where we are able to access the amenities and services we need
  • Outcome 12: We value & enjoy our natural environment & protect & enhance it for future generations
  • Outcome 14: We reduce the local & global environmental impact of our consumption & production.

The partnership will ensure that appropriate indicators and targets are agreed to support the delivery of the outcomes. Progress reports will be produced every six months and presented to the ACPP in January and June of each year.

The partnership will develop a delivery plan against each of the outcomes with specific actions identified for each of the partner agencies. A highlight report on progress against these actions will be produced every six months and presented to the ACPP in January and June of each year.

The partnership will ensure that indicators, targets and actions "below the waterline" demonstrate clear accountability to individual agencies and/or departments. Officers of the partnership will ensure appropriate links are made to relevant strategies and/or plans. Linkages to the national outcomes will be clearly defined.

An analysis of the data should be undertaken at least once per year and inter-dependencies between outcomes of the other thematic groups will be considered in reports to the ACPP Implementation Group on a regular basis.

Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust

Description

The Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust works to make a positive difference in the quality of life of Lothian communities by improving their local environment. We believe that quality local greenspaces can have a positive impact on the health and well-being of individuals, particularly in disadvantaged areas.

We work with communities, landowners, local authorities and other organisations within urban and rural areas, to create sustainable, well-managed and accessible greenspaces. We endeavour to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy their natural environment and work for the benefit of people, wildlife, landscape and heritage.

We work to create and improve urban and urban fringe greenspaces such as woodlands, community gardens, parks, play areas, school grounds and cycle paths. We also carry out a wide range of complementary outdoor activities to promote the positive use of greenspaces, encouraging mental and physical wellbeing. Community activities include guided walks, activity sessions (e.g. health walks, cycling, fitness etc), eco education, environmental arts and conservation volunteering.
