In the 25 Year Environment Plan, we committed to publishing an England Peat Strategy to create and deliver a new ambitious framework for peat restoration in England, setting out our plan for the management, protection and restoration of our upland and lowland peatlands, so that they deliver benefits for climate and nature.

We will be setting out a package of measures to protect England’s landscapes and deliver nature-based solutions this year.
