...and MINISTER FOR ENVIRONMENT ANNOUNCES OVER £3.4M FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO WALES’ DESIGNATED LANDSCAPES
The Minister for Environment, Hannah Blythyn, has announced more than £3.4m for improvements to Wales’ three National Parks and five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs). The funding will be used to support a wide range of projects across Wales’ designated landscapes, including improving access to the outdoors, promoting conservation and regenerating some of their most fragile areas. The announcement follows a commitment made by the Minister earlier this month to retain Wales’ designated landscapes and their current purpose of conserving and enhancing natural beauty.
