The Peak District national park is set to team up with businesses to help them flourish.
Local Enterprise Partnerships are being offered the chance to work with National Parks to create jobs.
Coun Lesley Roberts, Peak District National Park Authority chairman, said: “Some of the most special areas of our countryside are home to thriving businesses.
“This initiative will enable us to give them as much help as possible.”
“These businesses, and the ones still to come, are extremely important.”
