Landscapes Review and Response

A man overlooking the dramatic scenery

In May 2018 the government asked for an independent review into whether the protections for National Parks and National Landscapes are still fit for purpose.

In particular, what might be done better, what changes will help and whether the definitions and systems in place are still valid.

The review’s final report was published on 21 September 2019. It was led by Julian Glover and supported by an experienced advisory group: Lord Cameron of Dillington, Jim Dixon, Sarah Mukherjee, Dame Fiona Reynolds and Jake Fiennes.

The Government Response to Report

The Government’s response to the report was published on 15 January 2022 and it included a further consultation.

The Dedham Vale National Landscape and Stour Valley Partnership have responded to this consultation. You can download the response in full (PDF).
