Local people and communities are being given the opportunity to share concerns and suggestions with their National Park Authority, or Broads Authority, as part of a consultation launched today.
Natural Environment Minister Richard Benyon said: 'National Parks are not just beautiful and historic parts of the countryside, but places where people live and work. They are an asset to our country, helping to boost the economy and attract new visitors, businesses and investment.
'This is a real chance for local communities to have a say in how we should look after our National Parks for everyone to enjoy for years to come.'
John Riddle, Chair of the English National Park Authorities Association, said:
'National Park Authorities have a long history of working closely with the people who live in and near them. These beautiful places are loved by millions, and local communities, land owners and a wide range of partners make a huge contribution to making them so special. Our aim is to support thriving rural communities. We welcome this consultation and are keen to hear everyone's ideas for how we can further enhance our accountability to all those who value and benefit from national parks.'
