Stakeholder and Public Participation Plan - August 29, 2023  

The Stakeholder and Public Participation Plan (Participation Plan) supports the ongoing project data collection and analysis and describes the objectives and tools for stakeholder and broader public engagement throughout the process. It is based in part on recommendations generated from independent stakeholder conversations convened by the Otak consultant team prior to and following the first High Peaks VUM public meeting on May 9, 2023.

Stakeholder Conversation - March 30, 2023

On March 30, 2023, the Otak team convened a group interview with representatives of several stakeholder organizations interested in the High Peaks visitor use study area. These “stakeholder conversations” were part of an initial assessment to learn key issues and concerns about visitor use-related conditions within this study area, ideas and opportunities for improvements, and address any VUM process questions or considerations. A synthesis of the meeting (linked below) was prepared and distributed to participants.

During the meeting we invited participants to suggest others whom they felt we should be reaching out to. We will continually strive to be inclusive and eager to hear from those with interests in this study area.

Please contact Susan Hayman, Ross Strategic and member of the Otak Team, at with any questions about this meeting.
