The GNPA visits Holyrood

Alan Cameron

In January Trustees and Patrons of the newly formed Galloway National Park Association attended a meeting at Holyrood hosted by Finlay Carson MSP and the Scottish Campaign for National Parks.  Speakers, including Sir Alex Fergusson and John Mayhew, Director of the Association for the Protection of Rural Scotland, made an inspiring case for the advantages new National Parks could bring to Scotland.  Carol Ritchie, Executive Director of the EUROPARC Federation presented case-studies, which underlined the social and economic benefits resulting from National Parks in countries throughout Europe. 

Alan Jones, GNPA’s Chair, welcomed the endorsement of our aims and said, ‘A Galloway National Park would present new opportunities to provide sustainable development for tourism and recreation and find new ways to integrate these into traditional industries like farming, fishing and forestry. We have a chance to design a National Park that works for us’.
