Mendip Environment is a social enterprise managed by the Mendip Society and consits of local groups active in the field of environmental initiatives and community building.
Mendip Environment was developed by the Mendip Environment Forum in 2006 with the assistance of the Mendip Strategic Partnership and Mendip District Council.
The Mendip Environment Forum, hosted by Mendip District Council, has, since 1993, brought together voluntary sector environmental organisations, community groups and various tiers of local government. The Forum, meeting quarterly, has been successful in raising awareness of environmental issues and sustainable development within the district, and is a valuable enabler of discussion, dissemination of information and consensus building amongst Mendip's environmental groups.
Mendip Environment builds on the work of the Environment Forum, and has the ability to bid for funding, and to initiate and support projects.
