These are another brand new concept introduced by Defra. Any resemblance to the old Biodiversity Action Partnerships is purely coincidental! Bids need to be submitted by 6th June and there will be three bids concerning the North East. The Northern Uplands LNP will cover the Pennine Chain, including the Cheviots.
