"Our task is to help create a shared vision that we can all agree on, because that’s the best way to pass the National Park on to future generations in an even better state. What do we want farming, housing, tourism, transport, business, heritage and nature conservation to look like? What sort of place do we want to grow up in or grow old in? What’s the correct balance that works best for everyone?

Over the course of the next year we’ll enshrine this shared vision in a document called a ‘Management Plan’, which will set out exactly the work that needs to be done. We want the plan to be ambitious but deliverable; we want to anticipate the challenges and work together to meet them. We’ll set dates and targets, so that you can see the progress we’re making together."


Hmmm ....

A Monoculture

"These vast mantles of dark, compressed plant matter, which are found in lowland fens and upland bogs, hold huge quantities of carbon because, when healthy, they are almost permanently wet. Dead vegetation decomposes extremely slowly in the waterlogged conditions: this is because the fungi and bacteria that break down plants fast need oxygen, which moves through water 10,000 times slower than it does through the air. Whereas plants rot relatively quickly in dry forests or grasslands, sending the carbon dioxide they have absorbed during their lifetimes back into the atmosphere, in peatland their carbon is held securely below saturated carpets of moss."

Ah, So

"... the scheme’s leaders said they were now looking at a “more agile set of projects... The review finds that, by approaching the restoration in a new way, with a phased approach, including the potential of accessing the Palace from the river to carry out work before and after decant, and close coordination with the in-house teams to maximise the benefits from any early works, the time the members and staff would spend in temporary accommodation is kept to a minimum.””

"The other options it considered were: the partial demolition of Richmond House; no demolition, which would involve creating a pop-up chamber in the existing Richmond House courtyard; and erecting a bespoke modular building on the Horse Guards Parade Ground."

A Short Shelf Life

"Great British Railways is a new public body set up to integrate the railways and deliver passenger-focused travel with simpler, modern fares and reliable services."

"The shortages of food with short shelf life could also hit Wimbledon, synonymous with the British strawberry...

“If we can’t get our fruit to the supermarkets, that is massively significant,”"

"A combination of new events like the Filey Soap box Challenge and investment in attractions like the North Yorkshire Water park which he visited yesterday are key to making the Yorkshire Coast a go-to staycation destination."

"“I think it is going to be like a series of rolling power cuts in that we are going to see shortages, then shelves replenished, and shortages again. That is going to carry on for as long as demand is unpredictable and labour remains as tight as it is,”"

Has the Labour Party actually got any policies?

Or have they fallen asleep at the wheel...

Annoying, innit.

Oh Yeah, Boris nicked them all.

""I'd like to thank the squatters for drawing attention to the fact that Persimmon Homes has sat on this land for many years, despite having two planning permissions from City of York Council to do something with it."

He said it was time for 'land banking' to be made illegal. "

Sounds like a plan ...
