1385: Protected landscapes

This paper is taken from the Rural Economy and Land Use Programme’s Policy and Practice notes for local government No. 33 “Could protected landscapes have a leading role to play in the sustainable management of natural resources?”

Year of Publication2011

A statutory purpose for the sound management of natural resources would place National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the forefront of action on climate change, integrated land management and support for upland farming. It would make it easier to work with agencies like Natural England and the Environment Agency. It would also place Park Authorities in a key position for revised delivery arrangements for the Rural Development Programme for England and in the exploration of ways to facilitate payments and more radical partnership for ecosystem services.
