Norfolk’s Resilient Coast

Project summary

The Resilient Coast Project supported communities along the Norfolk Coast National Landscape to create and carry out a plan to care for their environment.

Through this project, the Norfolk Coast Partnership supported communities to draft and enact their own nature recovery plans informed by policy, research, and industry best-practice.

The Partnership delivered a suite of workshops in partnership with Norfolk Wildlife Trust covering a broad range of ecological topics to give residents the hands-on skills needed in nature recovery work (pond restoration, species identification, hedgerow improvement, greening schools etc).

£20,000 of small grants funding was awarded for community projects, allowing communities and organisations to put these skills into action, and a further £40,000 of funding for capital works that identified priorities within the community nature recovery plans.

This project put equity of access at its core and strove to engage with diverse audiences.


  • Create empowered and engaged communities
  • Support local nature initiatives
  • Maintain improved connectivity within and between communities
  • Develop improved evidence, data collection and recording


Cllr Andrew Jamieson, Chair of the NCP’s Core Management Group, said: “North Norfolk isn’t just home to beautiful landscapes, but also to rare ones too, and this funding will help protect some of the really remarkable habitats right here in Norfolk. These projects will provide new jobs and training, but more than that they will bring together professionals, volunteers and communities to both protect the Norfolk Coast and to help people understand more about the remarkable environment we have on our doorstep. The success of these bids is wonderful news and I can’t wait to get started on these brilliant projects.”
