Established on 1 April 1991, CCW assumed the duties and powers
in Wales previously held by the Nature Conservancy Council and
Countryside Commission. This created an exciting opportunity to
develop a more integrated approach to caring for the Welsh
environment, and for nurturing a new culture for CCW’s independent
position in Wales.
In the article attached to this page, CCW’s current Chief
Executive, Roger Thomas, reflects on the Council’s work and key
achievements over the last 20 years.
Also keep an eye on CCW’s blogs over the coming months –
www.thewelshview.co.uk and www.eingolygfa.co.uk - for some of our
staff’s musings on their work in CCW over the last 20 years.
