Do you know someone who would appreciate a present that will help protect the future of accessible green spaces for all?
We have joined a consortium with the Campaign for National Parks, Campaign to Protect Rural England, Friends of the Lake District and many others in support of plans to extend the boundaries of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. This will ensure that the magnificent countryside, much of it common land, between the two parks is designated, including the northern Howgill Fells. Natural England has signed variations orders which need to be confirmed by the environment secretary.
Please write in support of the variations, before 16 March 2012. The easiest way is via CPRE which produces a template for you to email to Defra and your MP.
If you prefer you can write to Defra, Protected Landscapes Team, Zone 1/09, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol BS1 6EB, or send an email.
