These ten principles will guide our approach to securing the future of England’s upland environment. We will use them to ensure that our decision making today will support our forthcoming vision for tomorrow’s upland environment.
The principles are designed to focus debate and interest in the future of the uplands, and our approach to it. They can be used as a checklist to guide and inform decisions made about land use and management in the uplands. Through discussions with our partners and stakeholders, we want to encourage these principles to become shared, and build on them to develop our long term direction for the future.
