What are the plans to engage with communities around the project sites?

All three project Pillars will be seeking to engage closely with communities. With Covid-19 restrictions, plans to go door-to-door with communities have fallen by the wayside and other ways of consultation will be used. Alternative engagement plans have been developed, information campaigns will be shared in local media, and the Peatlands and People will follow up on calls on a one-to-one basis if there are specific queries in relation to these issues.

The sites are located across a shared landscape and a key part of the project is about working with landowners and communities to deliver on the project’s goals. All project actions will be carefully planned and monitored.

Stakeholder consultations and other engagement opportunities will be announced and shared on the Get Involved page, so please keep an eye on the page for more information.
