Re No Parking Here
I would suggest that you and others who like hill-walking in the Mournes look very carefully at what is being suggested and get involved. The creation of a national park brings about the possibility of change. Put forward positive and useful suggestions. One suggestion: national parks should have verifiable targets for the amount and variety of independent recreational activity they encourage. (Some do in the US) Try to get the discussion to happen in public and in particular try to get the full reasons for decisions to be publicly justified which today means that they are on the internet.

Believe you me having seen what can happen with national parks in the south, the adoption of new policy also brings a time for negative possibilities. Here we have experienced a particular sort of "unbalanced environmentalist" pretending a bogus consensus and then trying to get a national park enforce it for them.

It starts a bit like the questionnaire you have encountered which can only have one answer: "Do you think paths, road and access can be improved" to which there can only be one answer. And the 97% acceptance of this is used to justify some harebrained scheme but without discussion of whatever the pertinent issues actually are.

Headed out last Sunday to climb Tievebaun, but the lightning put me off. Got some great views in the Gleniff Horseshoe as a consolation.
