Chalk, Cherries and Chairs (CCC)

This is an exciting new partnership Scheme led by the Chilterns Conservation Board. The five-year Scheme has been awarded a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £2.4m and will deliver a suite of projects across three key themes: Wildlife & Landscape, Heritage & Landscape and People, Communities & Landscape.

Further supported by a wide range of partners and funders, Chalk, Cherries and Chairs is the most ambitious landscape scale Scheme in the Chilterns to date. The scheme aims to leave a lasting legacy of improved conservation and land management, partnership working and community engagement.
