Trust backs national park expansion plans
Bookmark and Share
The John Muir Trust has thrown its weight behind proposals to expand the boundaries of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales national parks and has urged its members to do so as well.

It would connect the two national parks just south of Tebay, with only the M6 motorway between the two and the Trust has said people should write to the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs via the Council for the Protection of Rural England website in support of the plans.

These should be sent by March 16th and will be copied directly to constituency MPs.

Should the plans be passed, it means those who like to go walking in the national parks will be able to explore areas like the northern Howgills and lower Borrowdale while still inside the national parks, ensuring the preservation for the future of these areas.

At present, the Lake District covers 2,292 sq km and the Yorkshire Dales 1,769 sq km.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801309119-ADNFCR
