An independent review of England's National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) has been commissioned by the Government; one of the key commitments of the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan. The Consultation Ends on 18th December.

The review is led by writer Julian Glover, assisted by an advisory panel with a vast breadth of experience in landscape, biodiversity, heritage, farming and rural issues.

Last month the review opened its ‘Call for Evidence’ for anyone who visits, lives in or works with a National Park to give their views on the issues the report should tackle.

The consultation closes on 18th December - more details can be found at https://consult.defra.gov.uk/land-use/landscapes-review-call-for-evidence/
