The Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project (LCSP)

Sustainable Schools Event

Chalk streams have been identified as a UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) Priority Habitat.  The UK BAP is the UK Government's response to the Convention on Biological Diversity, signed at the Rio Eart Summit in 1992. 

Biodiversity Action Plan

As a result of this several organisations came together in 2003 to form the Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project;

The partnership aims to;

  • Make sustainable improvements to chalk streams and blow wells in Lincolnshire focussed around the Lincolnshire Wolds for the benefit of wildlife and the community
  • Raise awareness of chalk streams and related features and their importance to engender long-term positive behaviours
  • Improve our knowledge of Lincolnshire's chalk stream and blow well habitats

A project officer came into post in 2006 to deliver the aims of the partnership. The project has gone from strength to strength and in 2012 was recognised for its work by winning the National Association for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beautys prestigious Bowland Award. The award is presented to projects for achieving ‘the best project, best practice or outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty' which promotes landscape scale conservation through partnership working.
