NPMP Partnership

The Partnership is made up of the authorities and organisations that have a major contribution to delivering the objectives in the Management Plan. They meet as often as is necessary and have agreed the framework for monitoring progress.

The Partnership prepare annual progress reports to inform the National Park Authority and other key delivery partners. They will identify where there are opportunities or need for greater collaboration and co-ordinated action amongst partners in order to deliver the objectives in the Management plan.
