Community Action - Peak District National Park

We know partners and resident communities have pitched in to help with litter collections to compliment the work that rangers, gamekeepers and other land managers have been undertaking and that is welcomed. Whilst we welcome and engage with new visitors and collectively work to build understanding of both rights and responsibilities through our #Peak District Proud messages we know that challenges with litter will continue. We would welcome connecting up with litter champions in our village communities. We have had several communities coming to us and offering to volunteer. We are looking at ways we can support groups and individuals to do this safely. One action we are working on is supporting litter picking as individuals and groups. We are building kits which will include physical resources and guidance including health and safety information. Our own teams are working with district councils to arrange for safe disposal of any litter collected. If your parish would be interested in this scheme and maybe hosting a litter collection kit please get in touch with Rachel.Mora-Bannon@peakdistrict.gov.uk We will be following up with a parish survey to ask questions about what support Parishes need.
