The Friends will, if it thinks appropriate, respond to consultation documents from any body or Planning Authority on issues that could impinge upon the policy of the National Park. Whilst we generally do not interfere with individual planning applications, if considered to have a wider impact on policy affecting the National Park as a whole, we may also consider lodging an objection. The Friends’ responses are below, in date order of response with the latest at the top.
