We’d love to know what you think…

Longdendale is a beautiful area of countryside between Mottram and Thurlstone Moors, much of which lies in the Peak District National Park with Black Hill to the north and Bleaklow to the south.

In 1981 the then Peak Park Joint Planning Board (now the National Park Authority) published its plans for Longdendale: the sailing facility on Torside, the Trans-Pennine Trail, and creation of new woodlands are a few of the outcomes.

The future of all of this countryside is now in the balance as the climate emergency unfolds, with potentially huge losses in wildlife.

We plan to try and address these threats by continuing to campaign for renewable energy, low carbon travel, changes in payments to land managers and farmers, better insulated buildings and less waste.

In order to inform our campaigns going forward, we need to know the views of people who value the countryside of Longdendale now and what, if any, changes they think should be made to make it even more special.

So, we’ve created a survey which is open to everyone until the end of September after which, we’ll share the findings online.

Please CLICK HERE to complete the survey. It’s only 11 questions and takes about 5 minutes to complete. 

Feel free to share the link with anyone who you think would be interested.

This survey is open to everyone, and we will share the findings online and use the outputs to inform our campaigning for Longdendale’s future.
