Farmers, school pupils, councillors and conservation groups gathered in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park to see the launch of a plan to look after the area's fragile landscape and support its communities.

Nethergill Farm, at Oughtershaw in Langstrothdale, hosted the launch of the national park's management plan, which follows extensive consultation and details what needs to be done in the next five years to keep the area special, while helping it to thrive

The blueprint has been produced by a partnership of 15 organisations, which include district and county councils, the Environment Agency, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and Natural England, as well as representatives of local farmers, landowners and tourism businesses.

National park chairman Carl Lis said: “The people who live and work in the Yorkshire Dales National Park are immensely proud of it, and many of those who visit feel closely connected to this remarkable place.

“The management plan sets out our ambitions for how the national park will be looked after over the next five to ten years. It will guide and focus the work that we will do to secure a prosperous future for the national park and its communities."
