Parish Forums

The Parish Forums are a way of ensuring a regular dialogue between parish councils and the National Park Authority.

There are four forums covering the northern, southern, coastal and western parishes. Parish Councillors attend them but any member of the public is entitled to ask a question at a Parish Forum meeting.

If you would like to ask a question, written notice of the question should be submitted to the Chief Executive (National Park Officer) two days prior to the meeting. Questions should not relate to "individual circumstances", these should be taken up directly with the relevant National Park staff. Please use this form to submit a question.
