GNPA presents It’s Our Time report to Environment Minister
On 30 April the Galloway National Park Association (GNPA) met Mairi Gougeon MSP, Minister for Rural Affairs and the Natural Environment, in Galloway following a commitment she made in January to visit the region. At the meeting GNPA published its latest document “Galloway National Park – It’s Our Time”, setting out the case for National Park status for Galloway. The Minister indicated that she would give this report her “fullest consideration” and stressed that she was willing to return to Galloway to discuss this at any time. In the report, GNPA calls for the Minister to commission an independent publicly-led feasibility study into the proposal in order to examine the case in more detail.
