Estate proposals to face public scrutiny
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking or take their climbing rope to the Roaches in the Peak District will get a chance to have their say about its future in a public enquiry.

Between now and January 14th 2011 the public will be able to tell the authority what they think the priorities should be for whichever of the nine proposed management partners is chosen to take over the running of the 975-acre site in Staffordshire.

This may include a range of issues concerning access and conservation, with the candidates subsequently being quizzed on how they will fulfil the public's wishes concerning these matters before the new partner is selected.

Of the nine, some are proposing to buy and others wishing to lease the Roaches, with individuals, land management bodies and environmental groups expressing an interest.

The future of the Roaches was recently featured on the BBC Country File programme.
