Public to have say on new National Parks

Hulton Park

5th November 2018

For the first time in nearly 70 years, the public will have their say on how the country’s most cherished landscapes can be enhanced for future generations.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove and writer Julian Glover are inviting views on how England’s 10 National Parks and 34 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) meet the nation’s needs in the 21st century and whether there is scope for the current network to expand.

A call for evidence has now been launched to inform the Review of AONBs and National Parks announced in the 25 Year Environment Plan. 

For more information see the Defra press release and a Call for Evidence webpage which sets out the wide range of questions.   
Consultation closes 18 December.
