Is it possible to monitor changes to blanket bog vegetation using remote sensing imagery? This was the question posed in 2017 by Moors for the Future Partnership (MFFP) as part of MoorLIFE 2020, a project funded by EU LIFE, to restore huge swathes of degraded blanket bog moorland in the Peak District and South Pennines.
On behalf of the Peak District National Park Authority, our members, staff teams and volunteers we extend our sincere condolences to the Royal Family following the announcement of the death of Her Majesty the Queen.
The work of Peak District National Park planners in achieving a high quality affordable housing scheme in a protected area has been recognised in the Royal Town Planning Institute’s East Midlands awards.
As the world recognises the vital environmental importance of peat bogs on International Bog Day (24th July), the South Pennines-based Moors for the Future Partnership will be celebrating its own bog restoration success story as its flagship project MoorLIFE 2020 comes to an end this year.
The risk of fires breaking out on the Peak District Moors has now reached a critical level, unseen for many years. As a result of this, public access has been suspended from all Access Land until this exceptional risk has reduced.
