Moorlands MP, Karen Bradley has welcomed the news that £440,000 in extra funding is being invested into the Peak District National Park to protect and conserve our natural environment and widen access to our scenic beauty spots, supporting tourism and growing the economy.

The extra investment will support services for visitors, including education and visitor centres, ranger services, new trails, residential programmes, and provide more opportunities for people to enjoy National Parks.

The new funding will support access and engagement programmes that are helping to conserve the natural beauty and wildlife of these protected landscapes for future generations to enjoy.

The Government has also confirmed that the Farming in Protected Landscapes (FIPL) scheme, delivered across 10 National Parks and 34 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 2021, has been extended until March 2025 to continue supporting custodianship of our world renowned natural heritage.

Karen said:

“We are so lucky to have the Peak District National Park on our doorstep.

“It is a fantastic tourism destination for day trippers, and holidaymakers from all over the world and I therefore welcome the announcement of the £440,000 funding for the Peak District National Park as part of £4.4 million in extra funding from the Conservative Government to support visitor and education centres, ranger services, and many more opportunities for people to enjoy our National Parks.”

Environment Secretary Thérèse Coffey said:

“Our National Parks are the jewel in our cherished landscapes. They support thriving communities, economies, wildlife and are important places for public health and wellbeing.

“This additional £4.4 million of funding will support the important work that National Park Authorities do across our countryside and allow and allow local people and visitors to enjoy these much loved spaces.”
