And the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales NPs have both taken on extra land this year.  I guess that must require more spending?  Let's hope HMG is serious about restoring some of the cuts over the next decade or so.... ::)

No surprise at all, given the state of the nations finances.

Shocking that we can't afford a few million more though.  Given the gazillions spent on Welfare/Pensions/NHS.
If they don't like you going out, they'll love you coming in!
