Holy Island Landscape Partnership
The Holy Island Landscape Partnership will work with the local communities to deliver a programme of actions that will address the locally identified priorities.
These include the sustainable management of the natural heritage and the historic character of the island together with creating a ‘sense of place’, by increasing local awareness and appreciation of Holy Island’s rich and diverse heritage.
The partnership is looking to ensure that the landscape heritage is at the heart of the current drive to develop Holy Island as an international visitor gateway to Wales.
