Do the uplands of England need protection?
An inquiry found areas such as the Lake District, Dartmoor and the North Yorkshire Moors are impoverished.
The commission is calling for an approach which would see farmers being paid for looking after the countryside. It also wants changes in planning rules to make more affordable housing and says the national parks authorities should be given more powers.
How can we do more to protect England's upland areas? Do you live in a rural community? Do you welcome the proposals?
