The society has received the following information from the Peak District National Park Authority, please read it and respond as you see fit.
We are consulting on updating the National Park Management Plan for 2018-2023. This second consultation is your opportunity to help shape the future of the Peak District National Park.
Following the first consultation:
· The special qualities which define the National Park were modified and reduced in number from eight to seven.
· The areas of impact where we intend to focus our efforts over the next five years were reduced from eight to six.
· A delivery plan has also been produced which identifies the actions we intend to take.
The consultation document will introduce you to the seven special qualities which we believe define what is special about the Peak District National Park and six areas of impact where we will focus our work over the next five years, because this is where we believe we can make the biggest difference to some of the key issues affecting it. These changes are the result of engagement with stakeholders and delivery partners.
What is the Peak District National Park Management Plan?
The Management Plan is a framework that encourages everyone to work together to conserve and enhance what is special about the Peak District National Park for the benefit of all. It is not a plan for an individual organisation or group but a plan for the place.
What we are asking for?
We are now at the stage of putting the final touches to the update of the management plan and would appreciate your comments.
To respond to this consultation, please visit Consultation to read the consultation document and use the online form to provide your feedback. You can respond to the entire document or focus on the elements that are most relevant to you or your organisation.
Please encourage your colleagues, friends and anyone else with an interest in the future of the Peak District National Park to take part in the consultation. The consultation closes on 16 April 2018, so please make sure you respond before then.
