New magazine for National Park communities
Parklife – a new magazine for residents of the Peak District National Park – has been launched to keep local communities in touch with important issues in their area.
The National Park Authority is sending the free magazine to local households this week, giving residents information about high-priority issues affecting the National Park, such as:
- affordable housing
- the impact of quarrying
- grants and advice for local businesses/community schemes
- how villages can be helped to achieve priority-projects.
The magazine also explains how residents can get involved in National Park policy and conservation, and gives a full list of free guided walks.
Parklife will be published twice-yearly, and will be available at libraries, tourist information centres and ranger centres in the National Park. It can also be viewed on the Authority’s website at www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/parklife
National Park Authority chair Tony Hams said: “Strong and vibrant communities are the lifeblood of the National Park – only by working together can we protect the area for future generations.
“Parklife is one of the ways we are working to improve our communications with local communities and involve people in the work of the Authority.”
Any resident who does not receive a copy can contact the National Park Authority on 01629 816200, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Aldern House, Baslow Road, Bakewell, Derbyshire, DE45 1AE. The National Park website is www.peakdistrict.gov.uk
