People are being asked to help choose a new logo for a landscape conservation project in the south west of the Peak District National Park.
Three designs have been put forward for the Landscape at a Crossroads project logo and people have until March 13 to vote for their favourite design.
The project is for the local community, visitors, wildlife and the environment.
Karen Shelley-Jones, who is developing the project for the South West Peak Landscape Partnership, said: “We thought people would like to have the chance to get involved in choosing the Landscape at a Crossroads project logo.
“We want a logo that people find attractive and that reflects what the project and the place is about.”
The South West Peak project area covers parts of three counties – Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire – which meet at Three Shire’s Head. The area includes the Roaches, Axe Edge Moor and is the source of the rivers Dove, Manifold, Goyt, Dane and Wye. It is also home to internationally important birds including short-eared owl, merlin and golden plover.
The three logos can be seen and voted on in the ‘how to get involved’ section.
The South West Peak Landscape Partnership was awarded more than £150,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) in November to progress plans to apply for an earmarked grant of £2.5m for the Landscape at a Crossroads project.
The South West Peak Landscape Partnership is led by the Peak District National Park Authority and currently includes the following partners: Staffordshire and Cheshire Wildlife Trusts, Natural England, Environment Agency, English Heritage, RSPB, The Farming Life Centre, Support Staffordshire, Staffordshire County Council, Severn Trent Water and United Utilities.
