The Environment & Natural Resources Committee approved a formal 28-day public consultation on the draft Conservation Management Plan for Diana’s Peak National Park, as per the requirements of the Environmental Protection Ordinance.

Diana’s Peak National Park is home to over 250 of St Helena’s endemic species, and is vital for the Island’s water supply as almost 40% of St Helena’s water comes from the Peaks.

St Helena Government is grateful to all those who have already provided comments on the draft Plan during a participative preparation process, and is now very keen to hear further comments from Peaks stakeholders, as well as from all and any members of the public who are interested in the future of the Diana’s Peak National Park.

A hard copy of the Plan is available from the Agriculture & Natural Resources Division (ANRD), Scotland, and Essex House in Jamestown. Electronic copies are also available on the Publications page of the SHG website: http://www.sainthelena.gov.sh/publications/ or from Acting Director Environment, Natural Resources and Planning Directorate, Darren Duncan, via email: darren.duncan@sainthelena.gov.sh.

The deadline for comments is Friday, 26 July 2019, and comments should be submitted to the Acting Director Environment, Natural Resources and Planning Directorate, Darren Duncan.
