Protecting our National Parks
This weekend saw the announcement of plans to boost nature’s recovery and safeguard England’s iconic national parks for future generations as we build back greener.
- National Parks such as the Lake District National Park and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are amongst our nation’s greatest treasures, so we must do everything we can to protect them.
- That is why the government has announced plans to strengthen our protected landscapes – with a 12-week consultation looking at how to drive nature’s recovery within our landscapes and support communities that live within them.
- These reforms will play a pivotal role in meeting our commitment to protect 30 per cent of land for biodiversity by 2030 and ensure we continue building back greener.
