Partnerships

Involving others

We believe that the public and our partners should help to shape how we approach many of our responsibilities as a national park authority.

So, before we make important decisions about our priorities or the activities we plan to undertake, we aim to involve those who have an interest or who may be affected.

To that end, we carry out a range of consultations to inform all levels of our work, including:

Partnerships

Achieving our objectives is crucially dependent on our working with, and influencing, a range of other bodies and local people. The Authority does not deliver National Park purposes in isolation and works closely with a range of partner organisations as well as the people who own and manage the land and buildings – local businesses, farmers, landowners and local communities.

Where more formal partnerships are concerned, clear arrangements are in place for deciding whether to enter, sustain or exit partnerships. Current key partnership arrangements include the Yorkshire Peat Partnership and work with the Yorkshire and Ribble Rivers Trusts and the Dales and Bowland Community Interest Company.

One of the most significant of the Authority's partnerships is with the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust

The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) was established in 1997 with support from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority. It is a charitable trust whose objectives are to support the environmental, social and economic well-being of the Yorkshire Dales.

Many YDMT projects and programmes contribute directly to achieving the objectives set out in the National Park Management Plan. Since its establishment, YDMT has been extremely successful, drawing in well over £14 million for environmental and community projects within the National Park.

The Authority contributes financially to YDMT to support specific projects and YDMT manages the Authority's Sustainable Development Fund.
