Northumberland National Park seek views on Draft Management Plan

Northumberland National Park are asking for feedback on their Draft Management Plan which is out for consultation until 15th May 2022. 

Every National Park must have a Management Plan. It is the single most important document for the National Park as it sets out a long-term vision for the Park as a place.  The Management Plan blends national and local priorities and explains how National Park purposes will be delivered.

Northumberland National Park are taking the opportunity to create a long-term strategy to set the direction of travel for the park until 2040-45 and are now seeking views on their work so far via consultation.

The National Park Authority owns just 0.23% of the overall land area in Northumberland National Park. This highlights how important it is for the Authority to work in partnership with farmers and landowners, organisations and other stakeholders to work towards this vision.

Northumberland National Park Authority (NNPA) are asking interested parties to complete an online questionnaire by 15th May 2022 and get involved in polls and questions that will be running on social media throughout the consultation period.
