This programme is closed for applications
Living Landmarks was launched in June 2005 to fund major projects that will have a real impact on communities. Across the UK, woodlands, waterways, cycle bridges, parks, buildings, open public spaces - projects that enhance the natural and built environments - are set to benefit.
The £140 million programme will support large-scale capital projects through two distinct funding streams. All the projects have gone through a competitive and rigorous assessment process to get this far.
Three schemes in Cornwall, Scotland and Northern Ireland are celebrating their share in a multi-million pound investment by the Big Lottery Fund to become Living Landmarks.
The three successful projects have in total been awarded just over £70 million by the Fund.
Kerrier District Council’s Cornwall’s Heartlands has been awarded £22.3million; The Greater East Belfast Partnership’s Connswater Community Greenway has been awarded £23.5million, and Falkirk Council’s The Helix has been awarded £25million.
Heartlands is a £35million project that will transform 19 acres of mine land in to a unique cultural space for the community and visitors alike to play, live, work and learn.
