Quantock Hills Partnership
Who and what is the Quantock Hills Partnership?
Caring for the Quantock Hills National Landscape is undertaken by many organisations and individuals, including the National Landscapes team – all working together to keep the Quantock Hills as beautiful as you see today, and working to deliver for nature, climate and people.
The Partnership is constituted as a Joint Advisory Committee of Somerset Council, acting as an executive, directing the work of the National Landscape Team and ensuring that partners work together to conserve and enhance the Quantock Hills. The Partnership produces and reviews the statutory National Landscape Management Plan, which sets the vision of how we want the Quantock Hills to look in the longer term and actions to achieve this vision. Partnership meeting, which occur four times a year, allow the National Landscape Team and other partners to report back on progress on the plan, discuss new projects or initiatives and develop policies or consultation responses.
The Partnership consults and works with a wider range of organisations and stakeholders to achieve its vision and actions.
