Our Past, Our Future Landscape Partnership

Audience Development Plan

Between June and September 2014 we worked for the New Forest National Park Authority to help the Landscape Partnership they were leading , Our Past, Our Future, to identify and plan how best to engage priority audiences in the heritage of this internationally important landscape. This will inform their HLF Round 2 application.

We used a very successful co-production approach where we trained and equipped both the community engagement officer and some of the rangers to undertake pop-up consultations (street stalls) which meant that we consulted over 2500 people and transferred valuable skills to the National Park team.

As a spin off from this we worked with one for the projects within the Landscape Partnership, the New Forest Museum, to develop a mini tailored ADP for them, resulting in Ecademy.

Monitoring and Evaluation

In January 2015 we were appointed by the partnership to assist with their monitoring and evaluation.  Working with two associates, Rachel Lilley of Aberystwyth University and Ymlaen Ceredigion and Natasha Roe of Red Pencil we will prepare an over-arching monitoring and evaluation plan, including a project monitoring framework and materials; Carry out a mid-term review and a final evaluation which includes determining how to assess behavioural change and increased understandings and applying this assessment to the Scheme’s projects.
