How the National Park Authority handles its money

We receive most of our funding from government through the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in the form of an annual National Park Grant settlement.

We also attract significant external funding and generate our own income. The details of where our money comes from, and how it is spent, are explained in our Statement of Accounts.

A more user-friendly but simplified explanation can be found in our annual reports. Our accounts, management practices and business process are externally audited by the Audit Commission.

These reports provide an insight into the corporate and financial health of the Authority. The National Park Authority’s responses to the auditors’ reports are discussed in public at meetings of the full National Park Authority.
