During the development phase a portfolio of over 20 individual projects were identified through public/community workshops and consultation exercises. The partnership aims to deliver these projects for the benefit of both local people and visitors and the landscape.

The projects will include practical action for habitat restoration for native species such as the red grouse and grey partridge. Improvements to access and interpretation of the unique heritage of the area including townlands and the historical connections the area has with the Drapers’ Company of London will also be undertaken with community involvement and heritage education. Training local people in heritage skills in both natural and built environment will also form part of the ambitious portfolio of projects.

Key projects include:

  • Moorland habitat restoration works for the native red grouse at Lough Fea and grey partridge at Megargy
  • Old Dublin road access and gate and pillars enhancement
  • Plantin’ Park Moykerran Draperstown
  • Moyola river access work with the Moyola Angling Club
