New Life. New Environments. New Partnerships.

Launched in the summer of 2003, Newlands is a unique £59 million scheme that is reclaiming large areas of derelict, underused and neglected (DUN) land across England’s Northwest. Newlands responds to local and regional economic and social needs, tackling some of the worst areas of neglected land in the Northwest and transforming them into thriving, durable, community woodlands.

A Northwest Regional Development Agency and Forestry Commission scheme, Newlands also works with a wide partnership to make a real difference to local economies, communities and environments. Newlands is also helping to make the Northwest region an even more attractive place for investment; with projects based around key gateways to the region as well as close to major cities and conurbations.
