As part of our 80th anniversary we’ve launched a blog and survey, inviting people to share their views on National Parks

We love National Parks. And we know you do too. But we also know that people have different opinions about what the best (and maybe the worst) bits about National Parks are.

So as part of our 80th anniversary we’re asking as many people as possible to let us know what they like about National Parks at the moment, but also what they would like to see improved. You’ve only got until the end of April to complete the survey so if you haven’t done so yet, there’s no time like the present!

As well as this we’ve also launched a blog and invited people to share their views with us on a whole range of subjects, such as energy production, planning regulations, rural exclusion and more to come!
