APACHES and SEEDS EU projects publish final reports
October 5, 2015
Two of South Yorkshire Forest Partnership’s EU Funded Projects have published important Final Reports. The APACHES Cluster and SEEDS Project recently drew to an end and the Reports celebrate both project’s achievements.
The aim of the APACHES Project was to demonstrate how transnational co-operation improved the economic viability of NWE cities, regions and communities by managing and developing public areas to enhance their attractiveness to skilled people, visitors and investors, and to help set priorities for future Interreg funding programmes relating to urban development and regeneration. You can download the Final Report from the homepage of the APACHES website:
SEEDS addresssed the pertinent issues of temporary land use. It wanted to show there was an urgent need for revised policies and robust EU steer, that developing skills and prospects would increase the likelihood of growth, and that temporary use could benefit landowners and developers rather than hinder them. For that hard proof was required to show that innovative, short term land-use strategies were the way forward. The Final Report hard copy is available on request.

The VALUE Added Project will publish its results later this Autumn. It demonstrated how cities can best integrate bottom-up and top-down approaches and showed how to deepen local participation and broaden involvement in strategic green infrastructure development.
