BUSINESS leaders have formed a board to support national parks.

The National Parks Partnership aims to use its resources to help sustain national parks, including South Downs National Park.

Steve Curl, chairman of the Partnership, said: ‘Partnership with responsible businesses - without commercialisation - can deliver the support needed to secure benefits from parks for the massive number of visitors from the UK and overseas, local communities and the environment.
