Brecon Beacons National Park Authority – Rights of Way Improvement Plan Questionnaire

The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority is currently reviewing its Rights of Way Improvement Plan that was published in 2007. The Plan is the means by which the Authority plans strategically for the management, development, integration and promotion of the rights of way network, and other land to which the public has access, within the National Park.

In order to gather as much information as possible about public access in the National Park the Authority has devised a questionnaire which deals with a variety of matters associated with the topic.

The questionnaire is available here: http://www.beacons-npa.gov.uk/environment/planning-access-and-row/rights-of-way-improvement-plan-questionnaire/

It should not take long to complete and we would welcome your views. The views of the public are crucial to help the Authority determine how it should manage public access in the future.

If you have any questions about the questionnaire, or would prefer to receive a paper copy of it, please do not hesitate to contact the Authority on 01874 624437 or row@beacons-npa.gov.uk

The questionnaire will be available until the 3rd December 2017.
