The challenges faced by National Parks in delivering their statutory purposes and duty

Where tourism attracts visitors, economic benefits, and educates the public, their presence can pose a risk to the protection of the cultural and natural sites in a National Park.

This piece of work highlights some important common issues emerging from these reports, aimed at the Welsh Government when developing and setting national policy for National Parks.
