Our Members and the Park's Authority
The Northumberland National Park Authority works with a wide variety of people to care for our beautiful landscapes. We try to balance the needs of the National Park, its people, landscape, wildlife and culture, with the needs of visitors who come to enjoy the area.
All of our members of the Authority serve on the Full Authority, where the main business is conducted. The Development Management Committee considers all matters relating to planning and consists of nine authority members. Members also represent the Authority on a number of outside bodies to look after the interests of Northumberland National Park.
