Belfast Hills Partnership

Belfast Hills Partnership

The Belfast Hills Partnership (BHP) is an independent charity which seeks to improve how the hills are managed. We will do this by working with all our partners including local councils, government departments, community groups, nature conservation organisations and businesses committed to caring for the Belfast hills and their people.

We bring together statutory bodies with a role to play, including the four councils of Belfast, Lisburn, Newtownabbey and Antrim. These are joined by people from farming, the settlements, commercial enterprises and the recreation and environmental sectors.

All these groups have pledged to work together to solve problems and forge new initiatives to benefit the hills.
