IFLI shortlisted for top national award
The Inner Forth Landscape Initiative (IFLI) has been shortlisted for a national planning award.
It has been chosen from more than 50 entries in the Scottish Awards for Quality Planning 2019, which are considered some of the Scottish Government’s most prestigious awards.
The Inner Forth Landscape Initiative was a £4m partnership programme that ran between 2014 and 2018. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, it delivered over 50 projects to conserve, enhance and celebrate the natural, built and cultural heritage of the unique landscape at the upper reaches of the Firth of Forth. As a legacy of the partnership, Inner Forth Futures (IFF) is now continuing to work towards its aims.
There are a number of awards up for grabs, including ones for partnership working, plans, process, people and place. IFLI was nominated in the partnership category. Four criteria were used to select the shortlist by an independent judging panel. They looked at innovation in the project; the impact that the project has had; the transferability of the project and lessons learned from it. A final decision will be made by Scottish Ministers.
In addition to the five awards decided by Ministers, there is an opportunity for you to vote for the People’s Choice category later this year, which includes all of the final 35 shortlisted projects, with a closing date of 30 September 2019.
