National Park issues reminder over future plans
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking in the Peak District may wish to attend a public consultation regarding the future of the region, with organisers stating they are keen to receive as many responses as possible.

All proposals will be considered during the creation of a National Park Management Plan, which will dictate the Peak District's policies for the next five years.

A draft document has already been produced by a number of organisations including charities, farmers, land managers, community groups and councils, but it lacks input from the general public.

Chief executive of the Peak District National Park Authority Jim Dixon said: "We are pleased with the response we have had to the survey so far, but want to make sure that everyone who wants to has the opportunity to respond before the July 1st deadline."

Changes already put forward include an increased emphasis on climate change issues, boosting biodiversity and more focus on supporting the local economy.

In England, National Parks cover over nine per cent of the total land area.
