As you may know the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape has been classified as a World Heritage Site since 2000.

After a consultation period from 2007-08, three years of Heritage Lottery funding was secured to further develop and enhance the area from 2010-2013 and is known as the ‘Forgotten Landscapes Project’. Part of the conditions of the funding, was to develop an exit strategy to identify on how to continue into the future.

The Countryside and Community Research Institute and Commons Vision, have been commissioned to develop a strategy that will aim to identify and develop long term options that build upon the  activity and successes of the Forgotten Landscapes Project.

As part of their work, an online questionnaire has been produced to allow any volunteers who have been involved with the Forgotten Landscapes Project an opportunity to feedback and shape the strategy for the area. The survey should take around 10 minutes to complete – is entirely confidential, and can be found at: https://surveys.glos.ac.uk/flpvol

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who has been involved in the Forgotten Landscapes Project to comment upon it and help influence the future direction of its legacy. For many local people this has become an important and beneficial aspect of their community so we welcome people to get involved and for them to encourage others to do the same.

The survey will remain open until 12th June.
