Help shape National Park land-use policy

Where is the best place to build new housing for local people in the Peak District National Park?

Where is the best place for tourism and recreation development?

Should domestic-scale wind turbines and solar panels be encouraged in a national park?

How much more quarrying should be permitted?

What is the best way to manage traffic in a national park?

Should industrial land be protected or released for housing?

The Peak District National Park planning service wants to know local people’s views on these vital issues and more, to help draw up new land-use policies for decades to come.

Residents and business owners can find out more at a series of public exhibitions across the National Park:
