Throughout the project we will produce reports and publications to inform the European Commission, our partners, the community and other interested organisations/groups of our work and findings. There are four reports that are required by the European Commission, an Inception Report, Mid Term Report, Final Technical Report and Layman's Report.


Inception Report

Allows the European Commission to evaluate the state of implementation of the project and whether it is on track towards achieving its objectives, or whether there are serious delays and/or obstacles. This report was completed in March 2015.

Project Update

It's been a while since we've posted to the news section of the site, so in the spirit of the season, here's a brief update. The Humberhead Peatlands LIFE+ project completed its delivery phase with an event for our closest friends, partners and volunteers in June. We wanted to be able to say thanks to everyone who has helped to contribute to the success of the project over the last five years and this seemed the best way to do that. Since the end of June, the project team has been putting together the final report for the EU - this was initially scheduled to be submitted by the end of October, but the reporting period has been extended until mid-January, so we've had a little extra time to put together the information that allows the EU to determine the success of our project. After a dry summer, the autumn has proven to be the exact opposite. November in particular proved to be an extremely wet month, with heavy rainfall events punctuating a generally mild, damp month. The availability of the new pump has helped but inevitably the reserve is very wet at the moment, so access is difficult on parts of Thorne in particular. Although the LIFE+ project has been completed, management works on the site never stop and the autumn has seen further scrub clearance works being undertaken with funding from HLF and the Peatland Fund. The track to Boston Park was re-graded in November and the usual tidying and repair activities that follow autumn and winter storms run constantly in the background. Although the LIFE+ project is finished, we intend to try and keep some elements of it going into the future. We will keep updating this website (and more frequently!) and will be looking to find ways to fund future editions of Moor Space. Keep checking the site and our NNR facebook page for updates.
