Uplands Inquiry sets out timetable for gathering evidence


Our Commissioners have agreed detailed plans to implement our inquiry into the future of England’s upland communities.

We'll collect evidence covering a broad range of interests and a diverse set of perspectives from our upland communities. We particularly want to hear the voices of people often overlooked in public debate.

Our timetable includes a public ‘call for evidence’ scheduled for February 2009, together with a short series of evidence gathering seminars and six regional hearings. Our inquiry will be open to all to contribute, with live reporting as we move forward.

We're compiling a number of key themes to frame the submissions of evidence. Our inquiry will address the issues raised through our evidence gathering and use it to highlight good practice and develop recommendations that lead to practical policies and measures. It will demonstrate how upland communities function and how best to release their potential for the future.
