Footpath maintenance 'a priority' for national park
Bookmark and Share
Footpath and bridleway maintenance will be given a high priority in the North York Moors National Park as part of a new agreement.

The authority said a survey of residents and visitors had established a number of key priorities, with three being regarded as very important by both groups.

As well as ensuring the paths and tracks remain in good condition for those who like to go walking, respondents also backed the preservation of wildlife and habitats, plus a programme of giving grants to farmers and landowners to look after the landscape.

Director of information, education and visitor services at the authority Julie Lawrence commented: "The consultation is just one of several discussions and exercises we are carrying out to inform what will be difficult decisions around future work areas for the authority."

The North York Moors was designated as a national park in 1952 and covers 1,434 sq km.

Its resident population is 25,000 and its official figures put the annual visitor count at 6.3 million.
