About the Partnership

About the Sheffield Moors Partnership

The partnership developed in spring 2010 out of recognition from the various land owners and managers in the area of the benefit of increased collaborative working, building on the work to date between the organisations in the partnership, for example, in relation to future management of the Peak District National Park Authority’s owned Eastern Moors Estate. 

The core partners are the Peak District National Park Authority (PDNPA), National Trust (NT), Sheffield City Council (SCC), Sheffield Wildlife Trust (SWT), and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). Natural England, the government’s statutory advisors on nature conservation, is also a partner as most of the SMP area is designated nationally and internationally for its important habitats and wildlife.

The key areas include, and the lead land managing organisations are:

  • North Lees/Stanage Estate, owned by the PDNPA
  • Burbage, Houndkirk and Hathersage Moors, owned by SCC
  • Blacka Moor, managed by SWT
  • Longshaw, owned by the NT
  • Eastern Moors Estate, managed by the NT/RSPB
