This New Forest Local Environment Agency Plan Annual Review reports on the progress of actions in the first year of this plan (1999-2000). During the last two years The New Forest Committee has worked with local people to identify the issues of particular importance to the New Forest. In September 1999 the Government announced that the first steps were to be taken in designating the New Forest as a National Park. This status will ensure that the New Forest has national recognition, government funding for the conservation of the New Forest and a' fixed boundary set in legislation. In August 1999, The Agency was invited to become a partner in submitting a bid for the second phase of the New Forest LIFE Programme (LIFE m) to take place between 2001 and 2005. Over the last eight months the Agency has been working closely with the ten partners of the project to obtain funding for undertaking key work. Hampshire County Council is leading the preparation of the bid and in addition to The Agency, the main partners include: English Nature, The Forestry Commission, Hampshire Wildlife Trust, Southampton University, The New Forest District Council (NFDC), The Verderers of The New Forest, The National Trust and The Royal Society For The Protection Of Birds. (LIFE stands for the Financial Instrument for the Environment' and the Fund provides 50% grant for nature conservation projects that contribute to maintaining or restoring natural habitats and species populations). This annual review presents a forward look for agreed actions and also lists any new actions that have developed over the course of year.
