CNCC have discussed this with the National Park several times in recent months. Our aim is to boost the profile of caving within the NP, improve education, conservation and access, encourage participation, promote the activity etc. The CNCC will help the NP deliver the new plan where it is relevant to caving.
We are aware that the new plan will take account of DEFRA's '8 point plan for England's National Parks'. Point 8 states,
"realise the immense potential for outdoor recreation in National Parks". That aspect includes caving of course.
I'd encourage everyone to fill in the survey and mention the words 'CAVE' and 'CAVING' as much as possible. This really does help.
Nick - I'll happily take a look at what you have got.
