The National Park Management Plan vision is...

The Peak District: where beauty, vitality and discovery meet at the heart of the nation

This Vision is supported by four themes which are:

  • A diverse working and cherished landscape
  • A welcoming and inspiring place
  • Thriving and vibrant communities
  • An enterprising and sustainable economy

The Peak District Biodiversity Action Plan contributes to every part of this, but in particular sets out how we, the BAP Partnership, will achieve the outcome of a diverse, working and cherished landscape where...

"the richness of the natural environment will be conserved, restored and enhanced so wildlife can thrive, ecological systems remain healthy and its diverse geology is retained and valued."

We can sum up our BAP Partnership aim as:

Working together for a healthy network of diverse habitats that will benefit wildlife, landscapes, people and natural resources for a sustainable future.

BAP Partnership objectives are:

  • To enhance the landscapes of the Peak District and their component parts
  • To maintain existing areas of high quality habitats
  • To enhance existing BAP habitats
  • To restore, expand and connect BAP habitats where appropriate and feasible
  • To enhance biodiversity (semi-natural habitats and species) in other areas
  • To maintain and enhance populations of BAP species where possible
  • To maximise the associated benefits that biodiversity can bring, such as economic benefits, flood alleviation, carbon storage, and health and well-being.
