Development must be sustainable and will enhance the distinctiveness of the Park and the sense of place. Our policies focus on a range of activities:
- People Community and Culture: People who live in the Park keep it alive. Quality of life and local traditions are important. A focus on housing, transport and other facilities is essential. People’s voices must be heard and their views influence our policies.
- Sustain and Grow: Will the Park be here in the future? We are serious about how we can reduce pollution and waste. We must improve the way the Park welcomes tourists. We are here to help new business grow.
- Building Design and Heritage: Buildings are what people design and create – in the past, the present and in the future. We will look after them and recognise how important they are to our culture, economy and way of life.
- Physical Planning: The Park Authority is responsible for planning control. We carry out our duties effectively and sensitively. We must listen to the public and be guided by the National Park Plan and the Local Development Plan.
