The Authority adopted its new Management  Plan at a Special Authority meeting on 19 July.  The committee report, with the Plan itself amended is available.

The final plan will be  place on this section of the website, along with supporting documents shortly.

Previous versions and engagement

Work on the new management plan first began in December 2020.

From mid-February to early June 2021, we asked for 'Your Views', through a simple survey to find out what people value about the North York Moors National Park, what people thought were the challenges that it faced, and what changes were needed to make it an even better place in twenty year's time. 931 people had sent in comments.

A draft version of the Management Plan was then published on  29 November 2021. 93 people and organisations responded.

To help develop the plan, we established three working groups, with a range of partners:

  1. Nature Recovery – including Natural England, Environment Agency, Forestry Commission, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Yorkshire Water, the Moorland Association, National Trust, Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership, and the Yorkshire Farming and Wildlife Partnership
  2. Landscapes for All – including North Yorkshire County Council, North York Moors Tourism Network, Welcome to Yorkshire, Make it York, Sustrans, Youth Hostel Association, Tees Health, Scarborough Borough Council, and the Newport Community Hub
  3. Living & Working - including North Yorkshire County Council, Hambleton District Council, Scarborough Borough Council, Ryedale District Council, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership, Tees Valley Combined Authority, North Yorkshire Moors Association, Historic England, the Country Land and Business Association, the National Farmers Union and the York/North Yorkshire Strategic Housing Partnership
