The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) is looking for two ‘passionate and committed’ individuals to join the board of Members of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA).
The YDNPA board of 25 Members is made up of 10 people appointed by the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and 15 people appointed from local councils.
The role of a Member is to contribute to the leadership, scrutiny and direction of the National Park Authority and further its statutory purposes. The positions are non-salaried but certain allowances are available if needed.
Defra minister Lord Gardiner, speaking about recruitment across a number of National Park Authorities in England, said: “I am looking for a diverse group of passionate and committed individuals who want to help shape the strategic direction of our National Park Authorities. As a Secretary of State appointed Member, you will have the opportunity to help conserve and enhance our most treasured landscapes now and for future generations.”
