LNP Cymru is a 3-year project running until April 2022, funded by Welsh Government and coordinated by WCVA. The partnership consists of all local authorities and national parks in Wales, Wales Biodiversity Partnership, WCVA and the Local Environment Records Centres (LERC).
Welcome to the LNP Cymru projects map! This map currently shows the Local Places for Nature Projects run by all LNPs between April 2020 and 2021. Please check back as more projects will be uploaded as the year progresses, including this year’s Local Places for Nature projects and LNP funded community projects.
