See the views reported on the Cumbria Commoners website. Talk of a move away from the Upland Vision document of 2009 is welcome and the constructive discussion with farmers on the ground about where and how to burn, optimum stocking levels and predator and raptor control would also be useful.
Here's hoping these statements will lead us to a better place.
