Welcome to the Yorkshire Dales National Park...outstanding scenery, a range of wildlife habitats and a rich cultural heritage.

Have your say on the future of planning in the National Park

Consultation has begun on two documents that will guide the way planning decisions are made in the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the future, and we need you to have your say.

The first - a draft Local Plan - will help shape development decisions in the Yorkshire Dales between 2015 and 2030. It is taking a fresh look at every aspect of local planning policy except housing – which was only recently reviewed by the Yorkshire Dales Housing Development Plan 2012-2025.

The second is a new draft Planning Design Guide that will support planning policy and, at the same time, try to improve the design quality of proposed projects and encourage more innovative and sustainable development.

Discover the wonders of nature in the Yorkshire Dales National Park with our new sister site, Nature in the Dales. Whether you are a visitor to the National Park, a naturalist, professional or student, there is something for you. With stunning photography and detailed information about the species and habitats found in the National Park and where you can see them, we hope you enjoy our new website.

Le Tour - wasn't it fantastique?!

The pelaton rides over Buttertubs Pass during stage 1 of the 2014 Tour de France

The Tour de France has been and gone, and we are sure it will live fondly in people's memories for many years to come. So what now? We think that the best way to get over the 'post-Grand Départ blues' is to come to the Dales and see the beauty of the National Park for yourself, and find out what cycling here is all about.

You can also help Yorkshire's transport authorities by telling them if and how you travelled to watch Le Tour. They are interested in how you made your travel choices and what level of disruption you experienced on the roads and public transport services. This information is very important as it will help them to manage transport for major events in the future.

Enjoy the National Park...safely
