The National Parks Scotland Act sets out the criteria by which National Parks can be made, and it also provides a plan for communities who want to enter this process.
Making Galloway a National Park can only happen if it’s what local communities want. We are working on technical arguments to support the idea, but these are not enough on their own. Scottish Ministers will only start the process of designation if they can see genuine, grassroots approval from the people concerned. We need individuals, families and businesses to have their say.
