The Peak National Park is undergoing a reappraisal of all its assets which has involved it looking into land management as a method of easing its financial situation. One proposal is a project involving leasing sections of the eastern moors to the RSPB, in particular the moor surrounding Froggatt (left) and Curbar. Although at present there are no concrete proposals forthcoming, the situation is potentially very alarming, especially when the increase in bird nesting led restrictions that have been enforced in recent years. The BMC is currently expressing its extreme concern at this development. Check the thread below for a more compete account.
