8-Point Plan for National Parks

24th Mar 2016

Government issues 8-Point Plan for National Parks in England highlighting the importance of these beautiful places

We cautiously welcome the Government's 8-Point Plan which places an emphasis on ensuring National Parks are protected and promoted for future generations to enjoy. But we are concerned that it can't be done properly with national park budgets cut to the bone!

The Campaign for National Parks chief executive, Fiona Howie said: “It is fantastic that this Plan sets out the Government’s ambition to put National Parks at the heart of how we think about and manage the environment for future generations. The Campaign for National Parks has always believed that the National Parks are inspirational and special and we share the ambition that even more people, whether they are visiting or live or work in the Parks, should be able to benefit from these unique places.”
