The National Park is a place of exceptional beauty and significance, but it is now facing urgent climate and nature crises that demand a fresh approach. The impact of these crises is keenly felt within the park’s boundaries, highlighting the need to move away from traditional methods and embrace innovative solutions.
Addressing these challenges is intertwined with supporting the rural economy and communities, who also face issues like an aging population, housing affordability, and skills shortages. By collaborating to tackle these crises, we can bring about various benefits, including increased investment, business opportunities, and more employment for everyone in the National Park.
To achieve a positive and sustainable future, it is important to transform how we live, work, visit, and care for the National Park. While the path ahead is uncertain, we need to engage in a conversation about the future of the park.
From April 26th to July 19th, 2023, a consultation will take place on the Draft National Park Partnership Plan 2024-29, designed to foster discussions about the park’s future. This plan will guide all stakeholders in managing the park and achieving a shared vision for the area.
Everyone has a role to play in this endeavour, so we all should participate in the conversation. The time to act is here and now, collectively shaping the future of the National Park.
Respond to the consultation. Deadline 19th July 2023.
