Aim 5 - A Valued Asset

Aim 5 has three outcomes which focus on the National Parks contribution to local, regional and national outcomes. The Park has influence through a number of key networks in the region and, in working closely with the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (NELEP), the North of the Tyne Combined Authority and Borderlands growth deal, is a driver for positive change.

We work closely with many partners including other government agencies, businesses, charities and educational establishments to ensure we can deliver our other aims. As an example, the national park contributes to our national ecosystem services and is the source of clean drinking water for millions of people downstream.  We therefore need to ensure we maintain this resource through policy and best practice among our partners.
