Government issues 8 point plan for National Parks in England highlighting the importance of these beautiful places

We welcome the 8-Point Plan for England’s National Parks the Government published today which places an emphasis on ensuring National Parks are protected and promoted for future generations to enjoy.

For the last three years our Mosaic Youth project in partnership with National Park Authorities has been working to ensure that disadvantaged 16-25 year olds are able to access and enjoy National Parks. So we are delighted to see that the Government’s National Parks plan offers more opportunities for young people to enjoy these places.

Our chief executive, Fiona Howie said:

“It is fantastic that this Plan sets out the Government’s ambition to put National Parks at the heart of how we think about and manage the environment for future generations. The Campaign for National Parks has always believed that the National Parks are inspirational and special and we share the ambition that even more people, whether they are visiting or live or work in the Parks, should be able to benefit from these unique places.”

We look forward to working with the Government and the National Park Authorities to make these ambitions a reality.
