** All I want for Christmas is properly protected National Parks
Campaign for National Parks is calling for the new government to take decisive action by strengthening the protections for National Parks.
* We want all public bodies to be legally required to further the purposes of National Parks, ensuring that they take far more account of the need to protect and improve these areas in their decision-making.
* In the past few years alone, Campaign for National Parks has fought against many inappropriate developments including potash mines, bypasses, fracking, zip wires, luges and more.
* These include damaging proposals brought forward by public bodies such as Highways England. They are a long term threat to the vitality of National Parks.

Writing for History Today, Corinne Pluchino, the Chief Executive of Campaign for National Parks writes: “It was a pivotal piece of legislation for the conservation movement, but it is often forgotten that it was also an integral part of the reconstruction programme after the Second World War, sitting alongside health, housing, education and the welfare state.”
