Local Operational Partnerships
Fire Operations Group (FOG)
The Fire Operations Group (FOG) was formed in 1996 after a serious moorland blaze. It brings together a partnership of six fire services, national park rangers, National Trust wardens, water companies, major landowners and gamekeepers. The group draws up fire plans, oversees specialist fire-fighting equipment, raises awareness of moorland fires and the consequences, and prepares and trains for emergencies.
Local Access Forum
The Peak District Local Access Forum is an independent group that meets regularly to review and advise the National Park Authority and Derbyshire County Council on improvements to public access to the countryside of the Peak District. The forum first met in December 2000 following the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. It was re-established in 2003 with new members.
Moors for the Future
The Moors for the Future Partnership works to raise awareness of why the Peak District and South Pennine moors are so valuable, encourage responsible use and care of the landscape, to conserve moorland resources and develop expertise on how to protect them.
Peak Park Parishes' Forum
The Peak Park Parishes' Forum (PPPF) was established on 23 April 1994 to work for, and on behalf of, local councils (i.e. Parish or Town Council or Parish Meeting) within the Peak District National Park.
The Stanage Forum is a ground-breaking process which began back in 2000. It has found agreement on how to manage one of the best loved areas of countryside in the UK, by consensus with all of its many stakeholders. The area in question is the Stanage/North Lees Estate near Hathersage in Derbyshire, which is owned by the Peak District National Park Authority. The forum provides opportunities for everyone to become involved in its management.
Trails steering group
The Trails Management Plan covers a five-year period and focuses on the management of the four Authority-owned recreational trails: the Monsal Trail, the Tissington Trail, the High Peak Trail and the Thornhill Trail. All four trails are popular with a wide variety of users, including walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The trails steering group, which represents the main interest groups and user groups associated with the trails, was instrumental in developing the Trails Management Plan.
