Submitting an application to the Park

Northumberland National Park Authority is the statutory Local Planning Authority for the area of Northumberland National Park. If you live in the National Park this means that any planning application or pre-application enquiry relating to your property must be submitted to us, rather than to Northumberland County Council.

Other matters such as Building Control, Highways and Environmental Health are the responsibility of Northumberland County Council, within whose boundaries the National Park is located. Contact details for Northumberland County Council can be found online here.
