Rose Regeneration works with organisations to help them understand the opportunities and challenges they face and the options they have.
Examples of recent projects include:
Local Level Rural Proofing
Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra)
Rose Regeneration, Brian Wilson Associates and Rural Innovation developed a set of resources to ensure that service delivery and design reflects the needs and interests of rural people, communities and businesses. The resources include: (1) A headline statement explain what rural proofing is and the benefits that it offers; (2) An insight paper containing examples of local level rural proofing in practice; and (3) A briefing note in slide pack form providing easy access to the findings of the work.
The development of a Penwith Landscape
Cornwall Wildlife Trust (CWT)
Rose Regeneration undertook a community consultation project in Penwith (West Cornwall) to explore residents understandings of the key features of the landscape; consider the drivers for change and opportunities and challenges facing the landscape; and identify the level of support to establish a formal landscape partnership group. The findings of the consultation were used to produce a 20-year Vision for the Penwith Landscape, a resource setting out what a Landscape Partnership Group could do, and a document to help communities and organisations to think about their engagement with the landscape going forward..
