Communities and Regeneration Plan

Working with others, Natural Resources Wales has developed a Communities and Regeneration Enabling and Action Plan to help ensure that natural resources make a greater contribution to improving the well-being and resilience of communities

  • Increased public understanding of and care for natural resources – leading to behaviour change  and more sustainable ways of living
  • Improved social equity and community cohesion
  • Increased economic benefits for people and communities – reducing levels of poverty

Delivery will be monitored through a Results Based Accountability plan.

A wide-ranging plan

The Plan presents our objectives for our work with communities. Its scope is wide - it covers the way in which we:

  • run our business and enable others to use the land we manage to deliver a range of environmental, economic and social benefits (we directly manage 7% of the land area of Wales – much of it near to where people live and work: 120,000ha of woodland, 42 National Nature Reserves and 5 Visitor Centres)
  • advise and support others to deliver similar wide-ranging benefits for communities across Wales

A key enabling organisation

Natural Resources Wales's role as an enabling organisation is key to this plan. Facilitating and working collaboratively with others will be a core part of our activity.
