Democracy in the Dales

The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority has launched a six week consultation exercise, asking Dales residents and businesses to contribute their views/suggestions for the National Park Management Plan for 2013 - 2018.

Interested parties are asked to visit the authority`s site at www.yorkshiredales.org.uk . When I tried to visit earlier today, they did appear to be having problems with the site. If you experience any difficulty, try googling the phrase Your Yorkshire Dales National Park, and that should sort it out.

  1. We’d love to hear from anyone that has an interest in the Yorkshire Dales National Park or protected areas in general. You don’t have to live or work here, you don’t even need to have visited the area to be able to express your views in the consultation.

    National Parks are protected areas; they are protected for the nation to enjoy. They are also living working environments. There are over 20,000 people who live in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the vast majority of the land is in private ownership.

    With the National Park being the concern of so many people, what we want to know is what type of place do you want it to be in the future? What do you love about the area, what annoys you, and what do you wish for it?

    The consultation is open until 30 April 2012 and the associated photo competition runs until early November.
