Since the Landscapes Review launched in May 2018, Julian Glover and the advisory panel have visited many National Parks and AONBs and have talked to people who live, work in, visit and care for them.
According to Glover, “the conversations so far have given the advisory panel and me a huge amount to contemplate, highlighting common themes as well as those which affect just some areas. We will continue these conversations as the review progresses, but we want everyone with a view to be able to set it out”
With this in mind, a call for evidence was opened on Saturday 20 October 2018. In it a range of open questions are asked across a number of issues that allow people to set out their thoughts.
On 27th May 2018 Environment Secretary Michael Gove committed to conserve and enhance England’s most cherished landscapes as a review launched into the nation’s National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs).
Nearly 70 years after National Parks and AONBs were first established, the review will ensure designated landscapes are fit for the future.
The review, led by writer Julian Glover, will also explore how access to these beloved landscapes can be improved, how those who live and work in them can be better supported, and their role in growing the rural economy.
