Have you say on the future of county’s special landscapes

Residents in Northumberland are being given the chance to help shape the future of England’s most tranquil landscape.

From Hadrian’s Wall and Kielder Forest to the Cheviots, from hills and moors to woodlands and river valleys, the landscapes of Northumberland National Park are a unique asset for people across the North East and a magnet for tourism to the region.

Now it is your chance to have your say and to help shape its future.

The Northumberland National Park Management Plan Partnership is reviewing the current National Park Management Plan (2009-14).

The plan sets out a strategic vision and guiding principles, objectives and actions for managing the park.

Drop-in consultation events, where you can share your views with a member of staff, fill in a questionnaire or find out more about the process, are being held throughout the area.

One takes place at the Cheviot Centre in Wooler next Wednesday (September 23), from 1pm to 7pm, and another is at the Jubilee Hall in Rothbury on Wednesday, October 14, from 1pm to 7pm.

If you are unable to attend any of the events, but would like to be involved in the review or want to know more about the process, contact Clive Coyne, head of forward planning, on 01434 611547 or email managementplan@nnpa.org.uk
