SYFP is developing a new business plan and vision building on our long-established record of partnership and the strong history of environmental consciousness and voluntary sector action in South Yorkshire and the Sheffield City Region.
Underpinning the Vision are some key objectives including:
Working more in partnership with other organisations and communities on the low carbon agenda
Woodland and landscape as a part of natural flood risk management and climate change resilience
Promoting trees and woodlands as part of the local outdoor economy
Green infrastructure as a part of a sustainable transport network connecting urban and rural areas
Multi-functional green spaces in new housing districts
