A new Partnership Plan is being prepared for Exmoor National Park. It’s a Plan for everyone who cares about Exmoor: the place, its communities and the benefits the National Park provides to the nation. The National Park Authority is responsible for bringing the Plan together and is now seeking views on the draft.

Robin Milton, Chairman of National Park Authority said, “Exmoor is a special place, protected for the nation as a National Park. We know that it is cherished and celebrated by the people who live here, and who visit. This five-year Partnership Plan sets out the Vision for Exmoor, and what is required to maintain the special qualities of the National Park. Given the significant challenges and opportunities facing Exmoor over the next five years, particularly in the light of the UK leaving the European Union, it is important that we do not seek to preserve Exmoor in aspic but balance the needs of different interests now and in the future.

“It’s called a Partnership Plan because we know it can only be achieved through working with partner organisations, communities, visitors and businesses. So this consultation on the draft Plan is really important, and I hope that as many people as possible will send us their comments.”

Consultation on the Exmoor National Park Partnership Plan runs from 18 September to 30 October 2017.
