Tamara Landscape Partnership Board

The Board is made up of the partners organisations that work together to make the Tamara Landscape Partnership a success. It provides overall governance for the Tamara Landscape Partnership, although delegation for the day-to- day operation has been assigned to the Tamara Landscape Partnership team. The role of the Board is therefore to provide leadership, scrutiny of the project and, at times and where appropriate, to be a ‘critical friend’ to the project. The Board also holds responsibility for financial management, risk monitoring and strategic management of the project.
