General

  • The natural choice: securing the value of nature (2011). HM Government.
  • National Parks across the UK have policies and strategies for public access and community engagement (many Local Authorities also have access strategies) - www.nationalparks.gov.uk

Delivery mechanisms

  • Equality analysis - Equality analysis is a way of considering the effect on different groups protected from discrimination by the Equality Act. There are two reasons for this:

    • to consider if there are any unintended consequences for some groups;
    • to consider if the policy will be fully effective for all target groups.

It involves using equality information, and the results of engagement with protected groups and others, to understand the actual effect or the potential effect of your functions, policies or decisions. It can help you to identify practical steps to tackle any negative effects or discrimination, to advance equality and to foster good relations.
