National Parks in Britain differ from most European and North American National Parks in that they are not strict reserves, but areas of protected landscape (which may contain some strictly protected areas such as National Nature Reserves). Not only are there extensive agriculture and forestry, but also sometimes quite large residential areas, tourist resorts and even extractive industry such as quarries - creating conflict in terms of visual blight, noise and industrial traffic.

Who owns the National Parks? National Parks are not publicly owned land (unlike in some other countries) but, like AONBs, are a designation which confers special protection upon land within it because of its landscape quality. Naturenet
