Mid-term Progress Report

We have now produced a Progress Report, mid-way through the five-year Plan period, to review how delivery of the ambitions in the Plan were progressing. Despite the challenges of the Covid pandemic, the UK leaving the European Union and the impacts of the nature crisis and climate emergency, there has still been an amazing amount achieved in partnership, and some great stories to tell. We have selected some of the highlights to share in this Progress Report. We will also review progress with our Partnership groups, who will help to shape the priorities for the remaining Plan period

Exmoor NPA Climate Emergency Action Plan:

In October 2019, Exmoor National Park Authority joined a growing list of local authorities and others in declaring a climate emergency. The Authority set a target to work towards being carbon neutral as an organisation by 2030, and agreed an action plan to deliver this.

Actions are already underway to respond to climate change across the National Park as a whole, through, for example, our work on nature recovery, Farming in Protected Landscapes programme, and Plastic Free Exmoor. Work to update the carbon footprint metrics for the National Park, establish an Exmoor climate neutral target, undertake a climate adaptation assessment, and identify other partnership actions will feed into the review of the Exmoor National Park Partnership Plan in 2023. Exmoor NPA is also working with partners on the wider Devon Carbon Plan and Somerset Climate Strategy.
