Have your say on Peak Park

The Government is calling for the public to contribute ideas on ways to improve the way we care for one of the region's biggest assets - the Peak District National Park. Local people and communities are being given the opportunity to share concerns and suggestions with the Peak District National Park Authority.

Natural Environment Minister Richard Benyon said:'National Parks are not just beautiful and historic parts of the countryside, but places where people live and work. They are an asset to our country, helping to boost the economy and attract new visitors, businesses and investment.

'This is a real chance for local communities to have a say in how we should look after our National Parks for everyone to enjoy for years to come.'

John Riddle, Chair of the English National Park Authorities Association, said:'Our aim is to support thriving rural communities. We welcome this consultation.'

The consultation is part of a review that will look for ways to improve the areas that are cared for by the all National Park Authorities nationwide, as well as making them more responsive to the concerns of their local communities and·consider the extent to which different arrangements are appropriate for different authorities.

Defra will publish a response in Spring 2011.
