Archived discussion around deletion/merger of this and related articles[edit]

Scotland National Scenic Areas I originally started this page as there was an article for United Kingdom Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (the equivalent designation in England and Wales), but not one for NSAs. After reading, and taking part in, some of the discussions on other vfds above, I think this information should be moved into Scotland and/or the appropriate regions, and am happy to do the work.

  • Keep. I understand Tarr3n's logic, but I believe the original reason for establishing such pages was to avoid long, straggling lists on the main articles. This has not changed. At the same time, they make it easy for people to locate national parks in a country they are visiting without having to check every regional article. However, pages such as these should serve only as pointers to the main articles. They should not be developed into fully fledged articles in themselves... WindHorse 05:58, 25 July 2008 (EDT)
  • Merge into UK national parks. One article can cover everything here. Pashley 08:00, 29 July 2008 (EDT)
Pashley's idea of merging seems a good one, with a redirect on this article to United Kingdom National Parks, which should be able to happily incorporate the lesser designations. This discussion has been up for more than 14 days and I'm happy to do the work unless anyone objects to the idea? Tarr3n 08:29, 12 August 2008 (EDT)
  • Merge as per Tarr3n,s suggestion. WindHorse 23:18, 12 August 2008 (EDT)
I have carried out this merge, and the relevant redirects. Tarr3n 07:37, 14 August 2008 (EDT)

Outcome: Merged

United Kingdom Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty As with Scotland National Scenic Areas, I don't think this needs its own article. The information on the Welsh AONBs is already duplicated in Wales, and I would suggest that the English AONBs be listed in England and/or the relevant regional articles.

United Kingdom National Parks Same argument as United Kingdom Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Scotland National Scenic Areas, I just don't see a need for this to be a Travel Topic in its own right. I suggest the information should be listed in England, Wales or Scotland as appropriate. (Wales already has it.). Tarr3n 05:28, 25 July 2008 (EDT)
