Mourne Heritage Trust

Who is the Mourne Heritage Trust and how is it governed ?

Our Governance

Established in 1997, the Mourne Heritage Trust operates as a Company Limited by Guarantee and is also a registered Charity. Its governance is entrusted to a diverse board of voluntary Trustees, drawn from various sectors such as farming, business, tourism, and the environment.

The Trust’s activities are directed by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Management Plan, which serves as a blueprint for its work program. Every five years, a new work program is submitted to the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) for approval. This AONB Management Plan outlines the key areas of work to be undertaken within the Mourne Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
