In preparing policy for the National Park we must work to achieve the National Park statutory purposes.
Purposes are as follows:
- To conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage
- To promote opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities by the public.
In the interests of maintaining the close connections between local communities, economies and environmental conservation National Park Authorities have an additional statutory duty.
Our main objective:
- In pursuing the purposes, the Authority should seek to foster the economic and social well-being of local communities within the National Park.
