The BBC crew have been filming in the park for several days from a base at Bolton Abbey and are expected to take a deep look at several YDNPA projects. They could include interviews with:
- Strategic Planning Officer Peter Stockton on controversial restricted-occupancy proposals that will prevent new housing from being bought as second homes or as holiday lets
- The Limestone Country Project, which aims to help moorland limestone grassland flowers and herbs survive by offering grants to farmers to swap sheep for traditional breeds of hardy cattle.
- Ranger Services Manager Alan Hulme on the impact of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act (CroW), which comes into force May 28 and will increase the land open to the public from four per cent of the Park's area to about 62 per cent.
John also collected the views of representatives from the Ramblers Association, the Country Land and Business Association, YDNPA Lower Wharfedale Area Ranger Phil Richards and David Slater from English Nature.
The hour-long programme starts on BBC1 at 11am on Sunday.
