Looking after


The Peak District National Park was designated a national park for its very special qualities. These qualities include a rich diversity of natural and cultural heritage, enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.

No element of the national park landscape is untouched by past or present human activity. However, new technologies, more people and changing lifestyles mean that our potential to change the environment and the appearance of the landscape is far greater now than in any previous generation.

We work with a range of people and partners to give the national park a sustainable future and it is our collective responsibility to be aware of our impact so that the national park continues to be here for everyone in the years to come.
