Respond to the Consultation

The consultation on the review of our Core Paths Plan has been extended due to an technical issue identified with the online consultation system. The deadline for submitting a response has been extended to Friday 26th April 2019.

The draft Plan and the consultation questions can be accessed here. We are encouraging anyone with an interest in our Core Path network to take time to review the proposed updates to the Plan and share your response to it via the online consultation survey. The consultation asks you to let us know your thoughts on the proposed updates and also gives you the ability to draw any suggested path additions, deletions or realignments directly onto the digital map.

Paper copies of the maps and consultation questions are also available at the following locations:

We have tried to make the consultation system easy to read and understand but if you have a query about anything then drop us an email at Please also let us know if you require any of these consultation materials in large print.

What if I have already submitted a response?

Unfortunately we have identified a technical issue with our new online consultation system which has meant that some responses submitted prior to 29th January have not been saved by the system. Solutions by both the software supplier and staff here at the National Park Authority were put in place as soon as the problem was identified; however we are afraid that we were unable to recover any consultation responses that may have been affected.

If you submitted a response to the consultation before 29th January 2019 and included proposed amendments to the Core Paths Plan by drawing on the digital map, then we have received your response. You should have received an email from us to confirm this and need to take no further action. If you are unsure if we have your received your response please contact us on 01389 722672.

If you submitted a response to the consultation before 29th January 2019 and did not include any proposed amendments by drawing on the digital map, then we have not received your response, even though you may have received an automated email confirming your submission.

Instead of re-submitting your thoughts via the online system, if you still have a copy of the automated email confirming your response; please send this acknowledgement email to to ensure we receive your response to the consultation. If you do not have a copy of the automated email confirmation please call us on 01389 722672 and we can help you with your re-submission.
