Protecting and Conserving the Park

The Authority


NNPA Office

The front entrance for Northumberland National Park Authority’s offices in Hexham.

Leadership, planning, finance and business acumen all play their part in the smooth running of Northumberland National Park Authority.

The authority is tasked with the conservation and enhancement of the protected history, wildlife and landscapes of the Park, and with promoting the enjoyment and understanding of its special qualities.

But to do this, you need to manage the resources you have, both in terms of people and money, in an effective, efficient manner.
