Demise of the National Park

Share this article

I was dismayed by an alarming report which appeared in the Yorkshire Post last week.

It suggested that the National Park is being threatened by further schemes to exploit gas and mineral reserves as well as potash.

Are we all really going to stand by and allow this to happen?

Should the potash scheme receive planning permission, it will leave the door wide open to all comers.

We must act now to stop this before it is too late.

Please don’t let the National Park’s 60th birthday mark the beginning of its demise.
