The government has launched a review into the UK’s national parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONBs).

Nearly 70 years after the country’s national parks were first established, aimed at opening up the countryside and allowing more people to connect with nature, DEFRA announced on Saturday that an independent panel will look at how these “iconic landscapes” meet the UK’s needs in the 21st century.

The review will explore how access to parks can be improved, how those who live and work in them can be better supported and their role in growing the rural economy.  In addition; part of the review will look at whether there is scope for the current network of 34 AONBs and 10 national parks to expand.
