About Us

In 2001, a range of organisations reflecting local conservation, governmental and community interests came together to steer the development of the regional park proposal. Outputs have included the production of Ribble Estuary Regional Park feasibility study 2003, The Ribble Coast and Wetlands: A Regional Park Vision document March 2007, A Business Plan for the Ribble Coast and Wetlands Regional Park May 2008 and a Communications Plan March 2009. Other work has taken place to position the proposal in regional, sub regional strategies and local planning frameworks.

A separate marketing group was established in 2005 to work with attraction and tourism managers to establish and promote the area as a new visitor destination. The group also coordinates the production of press releases, publicity for the annual walking festivals and other promotional material. The group inputted to the development of the communication plan and oversaw the production of the Ribble Coast and Wetlands logo and branding guidelines.

An access group set up in 2007 works to create new and sustainable access opportunities for people to visit and enjoy the area's wild places.  To this end the partnership is working with major landowners and businesses within the park area, sub regional partnerships in shaping the green infrastructure for Lancashire, and the North West Coastal Forum and Natural England on the delivery of coastal access within the region.
