Natural England launches 5 peat restoration pilots ahead of overdue peatland strategy

The peatland bogs taking part in the pilots are located in Northumberland, Greater Manchester, North York Moors, East Anglia and Dartmoor and will form part of a peatland strategy for England, which was first promised in the 25-Year Environment Plan with delivery originally scheduled for “late 2018”.
