National Park plan to manage change

The draft plan, called ‘Managing Change Together’ sets out the policy framework needed to ensure the conservation and enhancement of the Park’s natural and cultural resources.  It also promotes understanding and enjoyment of the Park, along with fostering economic and social well-being of local communities.
Managing Change Together is the result of consultation which officially began in October 2006, involving a wide variety of partners, organisations and key stakeholders.  A draft of the new plan is now being distributed for public consultation which continues until 31st August 2008.  Copies of the plan can be viewed by following this link: or a hard copy can be obtained at the National Park office in Brecon.
Bradley Welch, National Park Management Plan Officer for Bannau Brycheiniog National Park Authority said:  “Conservation, planning and management are key issues facing National Park residents and I’m very grateful to all our partners and key stakeholders who have taken the time to submit their views on our future management. 
“We will continue to engage interested stakeholders to improve the quality of the Management Plan but it is vitally important that residents have the opportunity to have their say.   This consultation draft is an important step in this process and I would now encourage everyone to have look at the draft management plan, review our strategies and make any further comments directly to us – this is about all our futures.”
