Natural England (NE) has recently undertaken an evidence review of the causes and impacts of wildfire. This review is feeding into the Government’s land management policies and practices.

Over the last 12 months the local Peak District Fire Operations Group has set up a small working group to develop a strategic approach to managing wildfire risk and NE is working closely with estates across the Peak District to develop Long Term Plans that include addressing wildfire risk and management.
